  1. A bit of help req!

    In the May 21st 1850 edition of the Derbyshire Mercury there is a notice advertising the Sale of the Estate of Samuel Shaw of Norton Hall.

    One of the Many Lots up for Sale is The Lay Rectory of Norton with the Chancel of Norton Parish Church, or such part as belonged to the said Samuel Shaw, thereof and a rent charge of £14 per Annum upon lands in the Parish of Norton in lieu of Rectorial Tythes.

    Just out of interest can any one explain how this arrangement worked, ie did the Shaws own the Chancel?

    Also any info on the following Lots in the Sale.

    A Brick yard with Dwelling House and Brick Kilns thereon at Meadowhead

    A well frequented Public House at Norton Woodseats

    A Mansion House called Low Fields House half a mile from Sheffield with Gardens, Pleasure gardens,Vineries,Hot Houses, Stables and Out Buildings.

    About 13 Acres of Coal in the Township of Coal Aston.

  3. Tell us your memories of the Mojo Club ?

    When did you go ?

    What bands did you see ?

    What was the layout of the club like ?

    Did you know any of the regulars ?

    What was the decor like ?

    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

    Hi

    The Sheffield Gaol in the 1841 Census is transcribed as a Debtors Gaol, located on Scotland Street.

  6. Hi southside ;-)

    The clue is to the left hand side, just to the left and slightly above the name Henry WRAGG, where it is written "End of Bradfield Ecclesiatrical District". The comments in the last column look like they are nothing to do with recording a disability, but say "Eccles' District of Stannington". The word Ecclesiatrical having been abreviated.

    Kind regards

    Leipzig

    Thanks Leipzig


  7. Hi Southside

    Have you looked at this - are your relatives mentioned here? Sorry if you've already seen it! The maps attached to each claim may be of interest.

    http://www2.shu.ac.uk/sfca/search.cfm?srch...p;submit=search

    Thanks for your reply Dunsbyowl,

    Yes my ancester did make a claim,but as with most of the claims at DamFlask, it appears most claimed for personal property but not for loss or damage to buildings, this made me think a compulsory purchase order was all ready in place at the time ready for the construction of the Dam.


  8. Thank`s to you all for your maps & imput to my enquiry about DamFlask.

    A bit more help required.

    Most accounts point to the destruction of DamFlask after the flood, but the 1871 census return shows that six of the properties

    were still lived in after the flood.

    Were these properties part of a compulsory purchas order, if so do any records exist?

    The image is page one of the DamFlask Census for 1871 RG10/4659/38 can anyone decipher the enumerators comments in the righthand column.

    Regards

    Southside


  9. the village was on the far side of the reservoir, just below loxley road. their was just a few houses, a pub, shop, wire mills etc

    it was located near the dam wall, stretching back towards bradfield. the village was never rebuilt after the sheffield flood

    mick

    Thanks for that Mick. My ancesters lived in the village before and after the time of the flood.

    Regards

    Southside


  10. Can any one help with some information please?

    Are there any Staff records for Tram Drivers working in Sheffield between 1900 & 1920.

    I am looking for any info on a Francis Frederick Stephens who moved from Bristol to Sheffield to work as a tram driver at the turn of the century.


  11. Where was the Blue Moon? I remember walking on Nursery Street and turning into a side Street and going into a pub near to the Blue Moon club. We went to see Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders,it was some time in the early sixties.
