    What school did you go to ?

    I went to Waltheof on the Manor in 1966 and left in 1970. Prior to that I was at Whitby Road Infants and Juniors in Darnall. Happy days. Young, healthy, single and debt free

    Alfred Mccarthy

    Alfred is my 2nd Great Uncle. His parents, Michael McCarthy and Ellen Marie Nixon are my great great grandparents. Alfred was living at 55 Hallyburton Road in 1966 when he died. Yes, he died at Bramall Lane. United were playing Newcastle United one Tuesday evening. United won 1-0 with a penalty. He was a rum character, bit like his father. Kevin

    Coates Houses Greenland

    And yet another clue in my search for Coates Houses, Greenland. The census taker was on Broughton Lane and took the names of the cottages at the Canal Side. He then went on to Greenland, and you have to remember this is 1861 and its open fields and farms. He includes Barbers Farm then Coates Houses, Hinches Houses and Hodkins House in Pottery Lane If I could find the Pottery Lane I may be able to locate Coates Houses Keep trying .... Kevin

    Coates Houses Greenland

    I came across this photo in picture sheffield and it adds another clue to where Coates Houses were. I believe that Darnall main Road used to be called Worksop Road. Now only the lower part is around the Don Valley Stadium. But, Freedom Houses / Hill was mentioned in 1851 and 1861 census. This is the blurb from the website: Basford Street and rear of Nos 289-299, which front to Darnall Road (this terrace of six houses originally comprised Freedom Hill with Darnall Cottage, of which the gable end can be seen) picturesheffield s14838

    Coates Houses Greenland

    I did find it in the end after I had made this topic. Getting too old for this. Put Coates Houses in the search box and it came up with nothing, so I thought I had dreamt up that I had previously asked about this subject. Still cannot find anything out. Your link last time led to a directory that stated that the Coates Houses existed and led you back to where I started, the census. I have just been trying to locate their whereabouts with the clues and see if they are on any old maps Kevin

    Coates Houses Greenland

    I have relatives in the 1861 census John Nixon and his wife Emma living at Coates House Greenland.   I have scoured the internet, old maps.com etc but I cannot find any info about these houses   1871 / 1881 John and Emma Nixon are in Huntsmans Houses off Broughton Lane because he had come out of the army and now was a miner. Later these houses were called Butty's Lump.   On the 1861 census the registrar has gone to Freedham Hill (Possibly Freedom as he couldn't spell). There's also Freedom Houses, Tinsley Park Road etc   I can track his steps from High Street which is now Attercliffe Road I assume > Deakins House > Broughton Court Carbrook > Pheasant House > Clifton Road > Providence Place > Broughton Lane > Sorby Street > Broughton Lane > Huntsman's Houses > Canal Side > Broughton Lane > Swing Bridge > Greenland Cottage > Fisherman's Rest Beer House > Tinsley Park Road > Freedom House > Freedom Hill and finally Coates House   If anyone can help then I would be grateful   Kevin

    Albert Road?

    Thanks for that. I have a 1903 map of Darnall and it shows it as Bawtry Road. Definitely Bridport from when I was a kid living in Frederick Street. Had a schoolmate in Bridport Road, Kevin Burns who went on to swim for GB in the commonwealth games. Thanks again, I'll upload it to Ancestry Kevin

    Coates Houses Greenland

    Looking at page 1 of the 1841 census it appears that the census taker walked up one side of Worksop Road from Attercliffe right to the other end in Darnall at Catcliffe Road and back again. So, it appears that Coates Houses were on Worksop Road at the Attercliffe end of the road. Since 1841 part of Worksop Rd has been renamed Darnall Main Rd Kevin

    Albert Road?

    That answers everything as to why he is listed at Albert Road then Bawtry Road and when he died in 1910 as living at Bridport Road. So, he never moved house. Thanks for the reply and your help its much appreciated .... Kevin
