  1. Hello Dunsbyowl, I am attaching a few photos. You got the one ad but I can't seem to see it anywhere so I am posting it again. Enjoy.
  2. Does anyone have photos of the following: Granville House, Trafalgar Rd Rose Cottage, John Homestead, Christ Church 1871 8 Haddington Villa, Ilford Road 3, 1871 St. Anns Cottage, John Homestead, Christ Church 1871 Norman House 1871 Keeping in mind, I am not at all familiar with counties etc. Thank you.
  3. Am I not supposed to be using capital letters? If not, I do apologize.
  4. I understand. Just thought I would mention it as Pashley rarely seems to come up...at least for me. Good luck!
  5. Thank you for your message. Firstly, I thought you might like this photo of where Henry hobson Lived with Elizabeth nee Wicks - Llandfoist 10, Hornsey, Crouch End, Christ Church. Doesn't it look like a haunted house? Unfortunately, it is not haunted anymore. It was transformed into flats and then later demolished some years ago. This is the address -Llandfoist 10, Hornsey, Crouch End, Christ Church. I was trying to load it onto one of the search option sites, but there doesn't seem to be a way to so I thought I would upload it this way. I thought I gave dates,names and mentioned all the Hobsons were cutlers posting under Grove Lodge and Cottage for Dunsbyowl? Just new,,,,, hope the picture loads okay. Thanks, yes I have been in touch with the SheffieldHistory Research Fellows...well, actually they touched base with me which was nice of them. I do have a posting there too,,,maybe that is where I listed what I was talking about above. Lord give me patience,,,I am not a pc wiz and have never blogged or any of that stuff before.
  6. I have an Ann (nee Green) PASHLEY. She was born about 1828. Parents are Nancy and William Green married 1808. Maybe a relation?
  7. Yes, I never looked at it that way. A stroke would surely have affected his mind. Thanks Gramps.
  8. I apologize...not really familiar with the roads. Please do not assume me pushy, but I have tried everywhere to find the Greaves Hotel, in a way the name seems most appropriate doesn't it, but cannot. Am I mistaken that there is no actual hotel but it is the name of group of hotels? Upon your response, I promise not to push the issue. You have been so patient with this newcomer. Respectfully yours. Karin
  9. Looking for a photo of Greaves Hotel, Orchard St. Thank you. Karin
  10. I am searching for Hobsons living in Sheffield 1762 - 1890. They are all cutlery manufacturers. Have censuses but would like to find some photos of: Edward b.1799 d.1858 and Hannah nee Thompson B.1797 D.1856 Hobson m.1821 Henry b.1823 - d.1897 and Ann (nee PEARCE) HOBSON b.1824 d.1869 m.1842 Henry S. Hobson b.1848 d.1890and Elizabeth (nee WICKS) b.1855 d.1911 m.1878 Also, searching for William WALSHAW and Sarah nee Hobson? 1710 - 1782...any information on them woud be welcomed with open arms. Thank you for reading my posting. Karin

      Hi Karin....I will be a relative of yours. John Barber Hobson, brother of Henry was my Great Great Grandfather. My e-mail is carolinetemple@msn.com if you would like to get in touch

  12. Is this place also known as Pye Bank? And, is Pye Bank the name of an area as well as a road?
  13. Thank you Dunsbyowl! I do have an article from a very long time ago, but this one provides a little more on the circumstances. It is indeed a sad story..a tragic love story. I do appreciate you finding this. Could you please tell me how you got to the "thread"? Just trying to understand a little more on how to use the search application. Karin
