  1. I seem to be the only person who remembers that in the late 70s, early 80s (not sure of date) there was a lot of publicity in the local press about a family with quite a few children, living, I think, somewhere like Broomhill, who kept their children in isolation in their home, just taking them out for a walk crocodile fashion, and educated them at home?

  2. I remember, as a child in the 1950s that we sometimes visited an Auntie Trixie who lived, I think, in the Broomhill end of town, and who we believed to be a relative of our father.. We never questioned it but of recent years have found our fathers past to be somewhat complicated!!! Does anyone on the Forum remember having a family member called Trixie? I know its a long shot!!!!

  3. When my sister and I were children we were sometimes taken to visit someone described at Auntie Trixie. She may have lived in the Broomhill or Broomhall area of Sheffield. We never knew who she was or if she was a relation. Anyone got a Trixie in the long lost family files?
