    Green Square, Charles Lane

    Off Charles Lane, between Arundel Street and Eyre Lane.

    Green Square, Charles Lane

    I have traced an ancestor living at 2 Green Square, Charles Lane on the 1851 census. The nearest I can get following the route of the census is somewhere between Eyre Lane and Arundel Street. I've used the OS 25ins 1892-1914 map & the 1906 Insurance maps but the location is not identified and I'm assuming it was developed before these dates. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Van driven by blind man !!!

    Can't find a picture that caught the logo unfortunately (off shot to left), though this is the ad on the right hand side of the same window as was in autumn 2009. The property was converted (although I think adapted may be a better term) to residential use around the middle of the last decade. I think this must have been when the boards were painted out, There's an American chap who lives there (presumably the owner) who decorates it quite extravagently at Christmas and holds a party in High Street Lane on the 4th of July.

    Van driven by blind man !!!

    This building still bore the Kilsun Blinds logo (on the High Street Lane side) until quite recently. I think the board is still up but blacked out, though may be wrong. I have an idea that, if it is, the logo may still be just about discernable. I'll have a check through my older photos as there is a chance it could be in shot in some of my Park Hill or Duke St shots.
  5. Dear leksand Thank you for such a quick and useful reply and Mary was very appreciative when she read it. It is great to get John Rose back to 1927 at the Royal. Mary's dad, Ron, was there and we have postcards he received in 1930 and 1931. The information on the White Hart and the Rivilin helps also as covering the period 1935 to 1940. It appears there is a gap between late 1933 and for 1934. His third wife Elizabeth (nee Saxton, and Mary's grandmother) died in 1932 at the Royal, the death certificate identifying pulmonary tuberculosis and diabetes. She was cared for by her
  6. Hello Peter, I have a John Rose as licensee of the Royal Hotel, Eyre Lane/Earl Street from July 1927 to September 1933 when it was transferred to Cecil Hemmingway Clarke. In general the licensee would be at the premises with interim authority a little before the transfer to them and, similarly, have left a little before transfer to the successor. This, however, wouldn't normally be by more than a month or two, depending on when the transfer sessions fall. He appears as licensee at the Rivelin Tavern in July 1936 until May 1940. The Globe Inn, Porter Street was a beerhouse, hence
  7. John William Rose is my partner's grandfather and we are trying to obtain further information. From family material and the A-Z Index of Pubs John Rose was the licence of the Royal Hotel, 65, Earl Street in 1930 until 1936. We don't know whether he was there before this date. In the 1939 Register he is the licence of the Rivelin, Tofts Lane, but we do not know for how long.. His daughter Ida Clixby (nee Rose) was the licence of The Globe Tavern, 107, Porter St., in 1939. In the A-Z she is shown as being there 1937-1942 being a beer retailer only after 1938. The oub was bombed in

    Shefffield Street Names

    I have a good one for you. Corker Bottoms Lane - Edmund Corker in 1685 (ACM S78) owned all the land around the area. The Lane slopes down to the bottoms of fields, hence the name.

    Shefffield Street Names

    Molly or Mally Wragg Lane - now called Brincliffe Edge Road. When Sir John Murray came down from Tullibardine Castle to live at Banner Cross Hall, he brought a number of servants - amongst them was Wragg and his wife. They were accommodated in the old Dove Houses (pulled down in 1908 to build Louth Road). Among the many offspring of the Wraggs was Mary (or Molly or Mally) who returned to Ecclesall after being in service and became a midwife, living in a small cottage at the top of Brincliffe Edge Road. She never married. The locals used her as a doctor, and whenever there was a need, t

    Who is Flo?

    A friend of my mothers. On the back it says From Flo to Joyce. My mum was born in 1923 originating from Attercliffe and worked at Bachelors on Claywheels Lane. Does anyone have Flo in their family?

    Brightside Lane - houses

    Was looking at other properties in this area a little while back and it would appear that the address of your GGF was mistated on the census! There is actually a conventional numbering system applied to Brightside Lane (Brightside Bierlow) which begins from (or directly after) the Junction Hotel, with that (or an otherwise unnumbered, adjacent property) being the inferred #2, and numbers allocated 4, 6 &c increasing in the direction of Brightside. I'd guess the row of houses numbered #1-7 to the SW of the Steam Clock was probably known as something or other Terrace, but that this was not r
  13. I remember going in the old army surplus store on Button Lane with my older brothers. They bought some old WD telephones and candlestick type phones to try and connect up an intercom system at home! Don't remember it working though!
  14. One of the first or the first Swap Shop in Sheffield was on Button Lane, it was around 1956/7, also a type of second hand business was close to it but it was more like ex war department stuff, I remember two or three runway lights from an airfield were round in the backyard, it wasn’t bric a brac or household stuff they sold, wish I had paid more attention now.

    I think the second picture is further down the road from the first photo, I think it is the same bridge in both photos. The slip road to the left is up to Manor Lane and the main carriage way swings to the right down into town.

    History of Smithy Wood Crescent, Woodseats

    Ruth, I used to work on Smithy Wood Crescent in the 70's at Thornton's (of Chocolate Kabin fame) who had their main offices on the section of Smithy Wood Crescent to the west of Woodseats Road leading up to Crabtree Bank Farm from the corner of Archer Road and Ulverston Road. Our Shopfitters were based in one of the old barns of the farm where the road turned into Ledstone Road. One of Thornton's production sites was on Archer Road built on the site of a disused quarry which is now flats. I would have thought that originally Smith Wood Crescent ran from Chesterfield Road to Archer Road, a

    Bands From Sheffield - The Definitive List

    Hi, If we go back to the 60's many pubs and clubs had concert rooms so there were hundreds of Sheffield and district bands. As kids we would go to the Centre Spot at Base Green and the Old Harrow (Wheel Barrow) on White Lane. An excellent band who I saw around Sheffield were called someting like the Quillers(?), they sounded a bit like the Animals. In addition to pubs I also saw them palying at some Lord Mayors twinning do at Whirlow Court in 1965. I think their lead singer was called Andy and their manager was a bloke called Charlie Parkin - what's happened to them? Another band I r

    Brightside Lane - houses

    Sorry to labour the point, particularly as it is now evident that it is not relevant to your original enquiry, but this is not a matter of conjecture. Weedon Street, the street running from Carbrook & Tinsley to Brightside, was known as Brightside Lane in the late 1860s & early 1870s. It may not appear on preceding or subsequent OS Maps as such but it does on architects plans for official submission for developments in that part of Carbrook as well as magistrates' records precisely of that period. It was known as such, very reasonably, because it was the lane that ran to Brightside.

    Brightside Lane - houses

    Having looked at several maps in date order I reckon that:- 1854 Bents Lane (now called Brightside Lane) ran from Savile Street East along the top of Newhall Road to Brightside Bridge where there was a junction where the Bridge Inn used to be. Brightside Lane (now called Meadowhall Road) ran NE along the northern bank of the river to Brightside Mill. Mill Lane (now called Weedon Street) ran from Attercliffe Road to the junction at the Bridge Inn. 1890 Mill Lane is now called Weedon Street. Bents Lane is now called Brightside Lane and ends at the tram terminus at the side of the Bridg

    Brightside Lane - houses

    John this is the enumerators route from the 1871 census, it might give you a better idea as to where your ancestor was living. No5 Brightside Lane was on the last census page right at the end of his route, I've also included the next route he walked after leaving Brightside Lane.

    Brightside Lane - houses

    Thanks - not sure which photo you mean as I get 200 coming up on that search! Sadly not really of use to me anyway as my area of interest is Brightside Lane "proper" - the even numbered properties around Newhall - and the Holmes farm area on Brightside Lane "Attercliffe" (though actually in Brightside Bierlow) where 1871 census data doesn't offer sufficient detail to "route trace" and the resident I required to prove the broader property location had, seemingly, left in the preceding year. The point of my original post, perhaps missed, was that if Weedon Street was numbered at the time th

    Brightside Lane - houses

    Is this Brightside Lane, Brightside Bierlow or Brightside Lane, Attercliffe cum Darnall (ie. Carbrook)? I've recently had a devil of a time trying to pinpoint properties on Brightside Lane, Brightside Bierlow in the 1871 census. There seems to be a disparity of ~380 in the numbers designated between then and the 1950's surveys but as Madannie77 mentions, they're all evens. Although I don't think it appears on OS maps, what is now known as Weedon Street was called Brightside Lane. I've encountered it frequently in architects plans, police reports, press and the like. There were defini
