  2. 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


    Thanks Leipzig

  3. 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.


    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.

  4. 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.



  5. 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


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



  6. 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.

  7. 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.
