  7. Hi Thanks for that info. I was wondering how a shopkeeper could afford to buy houses? He does not seem that well off. What do you think?
  8. Hi Some info i have from another website about John Lown. He was born at Holbeach in Lincolnshire in 1850, the son of Samuel Lown, a farm worker, and his wife Judith. At the time of the 1871 census he was an apprentice wheelwright in Holbeach, but by 1876 he had moved to Sheffield, where he married Annie Godley in that year. The Lowns had a daughter Amy, born early in 1877, and a son John William who was born two years later but who, sadly, died while still a baby. The 1881 census shows John, Annie and Amy living in Clay Street, Attercliffe, where John was described as a "joiner and master wheelwright". By 1891 the Lowns had moved around the corner to 97 Brompton Road and John is now a "joiner and builder" - here is a scan from the 1891 census return. By the time of the 1901 census the Lowns had moved to 93 School Road, Crookes. They had moved from there by 1905, and Annie (though not John) is listed in the 1911 census return in "Ecclesall Bierlow". John may have died by then; if so his death does not seem to have been registered. Just to add. It was apparently renamed in 1902 whilst John Lown was still alive. I wonder why? Thestars
  9. Hi Thank you. Would a shop keeper be in a position to build houses? I had some info from another source that says he built some or all of the houses in Swarcliffe. Rd.
  10. Hi I used to live on Swarcliffe Rd S9 and noticed the street sign that said late Lown St. I think it was changed in the early 1900's. Would love to know who John Lown was?, why he built houses there? and finally why the name change? Look forward to learning new things! Many Thanks thestars
