On Wednesday,an inquest was held on view of the body of George Bellamy who was in the act of decending into one of the pits at the Deep Pit Colliery near Sheffield when the rope to which the corve was attached broke and he was precipitated to the bottom and killed. Verdict Accidental death. what is a corve? any one! Thank`s mgc The 1851 census should read 1841. My Ancesters The Bellamys, most of them Miners and most lived in The Park District of Sheffield. George Bellamys Father Peter, was living on Stafford Street in 1808. Southside

  19. I think it was some time in 1965 when we went along to the Mojo to see The Pretty Things. The Doorman refused us entry as a couple of my mates "had longish hair" (a bit ironic considering the length of vocalist Phil Mays hair), the Doorman explaned, The Mojo has a ban on long hair to keep out a bad eliment. We pointed the mates with" longish hair" in the direction of the pub just down Barnsley Road, the rest of us had a fab time at The Mojo!! dancing along to Tommy Tuckers High-Heel Sneakers comes to mind. Oh to be 19 again Southside
