    Sheffield Coal Mines

    Came across this list on this site : http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancest...0.htm#YORKSHIRE Not sure if it has been posted before. My Great Grandad worked at the Brightside pit which he walked into rather than travelling down a shaft - and interesting see no 40 Benjamin Huntsman is down as a mine owner- I assume it is the same one? 1 Aston Main, Sheffield, W.

  2. A new life in Sheffield The Tew family discussed below appears to have come to Sheffield via Cherington in the West Midlands[1]. Cutlery apprenticeship records reveal that Joseph Tew, son of Simms, a wool comber of Cherington, was apprenticed to Isaac Brown, knifemaker, in 1792[2]. That entry is of additional interest because it mentions that £15 (presumably of the indenture fee) was paid by the Quakers after agreement at a quarterly meeting at Warwick. Simms (also Sims or Simmes), is an unusual forename, of course, and so distinctly helpful for the discovery of family and antecedent

  5. While walking along Myers Lane near Worrall I noticed what looks like a marker stone on the north side of the road at 53.24.56 North x 1.33.10 West, it appears to have ODC 1868 No1 engraved on it. Although I'm from Worrall originally and must have walked past it many times this is the first time I've noticed it. Can anyone tell me what it is for? Also, on all the old maps there is a building called Larch Hall close to this marker. As a child I always knew the area as Larch Hall but there was nothing to see even back then [1960's]. Can anyone tell me anything about Larch Hall? Pete
  6. Hello, My grandfather died apparently in a hospital/hospice on Lydgate Lane. 'Once you went to Lydgate Lane you never go home' was the bleak expression used once admitted. This would have been around 1940ish. It was specifically for chest and lung diseases. Can anyone give me a link to map of this area so that I can look for likely premises. It is an old relative who told me whose memory is faded. Could he be thinking of the Thornbury Hospital? Sorry the details are so vague but that's all that I was given to work on. Many thanks for looking.

  8. Whilst looking at other things in the area on Street View I saw that a road bridge over Storth Lane in Ranmoor was listed. I went and had a look and it's certainly unusual for a Sheffield road bridge! I wonder which road was in place first and why such an ornate structure?
  9. In 1945/46 after the Second World War people from Italy moved to Sheffield and went into a resettlement camp called ‘Wood Lane Camp’ in Sheffield. Some records have this camp as being in Wadsley Can anyone shine a light on Wood Lane Resettlement Camp and can we have as much info as possible please? It’s for someone researching their fathers movements What do we know about this mystery place?

    Coal men in Sheffield

    Does anyone know of a Coal dealers in Sheffield around the woodlouse area in the 1960s? I believe the dealer operated from a yard in Market street. I would be really interested in any information Thanks
  13. I attach a screen shot of the 1849 Ordnance Survey map of part of the city centre. I'm looking at the history of the Porter Brook in the area. I've walked through the culverted parts a few times and there is a lovely stone arch bridge/tunnel between the Decathlon car park and the former Staples car park. The latter entrance is visible through a clump of trees. I think from the 1849 map that this is the two centuries old, and still intact, Vulcan Works Bridge (Vulcan Works was certainly on the site at the old Staples car park end). It is best part of 100 yards long and the Ordnance survey map s

    I know Brunswick Road. Pitsmoor, (AKA localy "Champs Hill") was once called "Tom Cross Lane", But who was Tom Cross, and when / why was the name changed to Brunswick Road.? Does any one know ?
  15. My Grandparents and Uncle were the Neale's that lived at 119 Rock Street and were killed, my Mother was 3 years old and was not with them that day as she was sick and with a relative. I was told by my Mother that her Mothers sister adopted her she was told later that she was adopted and what had happened to her parents and baby brother. My Mother told me that they had been to get groceries and on the way home the sirens went off they were closer to the house so that's were they ran instead of the air raid shelter. My Mothers Grandmother (her dads mother) that lived on Kilton Lan
  16. I seem to think mistakenly that Andrews was there when I was at school in the 1950s. But I think it was much later! Where would we have bought our stationery before Andrews?

    Wheats Lane

    So, no-one told me about Wheats Lane in Paradise Square then ? Keeping secrets, huh ? Important resident judging by the name and a plaque on the wall to a well known Doctor with Victoria connections ? Who are these people please ? Remarkable little lane with a great building on the end, dog-walkers give it a go.

    Leppings Lane, Hillsborough

    Quite a few changes on Leppings Lane over the years!
  22. From the reverse: THIS WOMAN IS NOT AFRAID TO WORK Mrs. P.G. Woodfield is Sheffield's only woman coal dealer. She delivers the bags of coal herself, as well as driving the lorry, and doing the necessary repairs. Some of the sacks of coal she delivers weigh 75 Kilogramms. Mrs Woodfield unloading sacks of coal from her lorry during her daily round at Sheffield.
  23. Here's a video for anyone who hasn't been down/through Jew Lane in Sheffield City Centre
  24. Sounds like an early 1970's Slade album ! Well, here is the list of Pubs with no known keeper - some of these are very old and very unlikely ever to give up their secret - some opened in 2002 and I just don't have keeper information for them - any help with old or new much appreciated.

  25. The Neepsend Tavern Pub, 144 Neepsend Lane, Sheffield This building looks like it's had an interesting history, having been a Worksop Ales pub, selling beers, and spirits to the Sheffield folk in the past. In later years it actually became a massage parlour so quite a difference there in building usage! What else can we find out about this pub
