  1. Hope you don`t mind me contributing chapbrook! I think given address is Redmires! The enumerators fancy capital R incorporates the first few letters of the name. The 1841 census page of your ancestor Joseph Ogden shows the next home visited on the enumerators route was Lumley Lodge, this property is along the lane leading off from Fairthorn Green where the Ogdens lived, just shown on the edge of your map. You can see it better on this screenshot (old-maps.co.uk)
  2. Hi - with the fear of having asked this before (and I am sorry if I had!) has anyone a photo of this church. David sent me a photo just recently BUT it was of the original church which was demolished well before I started attending church in the 1950/60's. The one I remember had a frontage on Attercliffe Road although it was a little off the pavement with some shallow steps up to the folding doors (I think they were folding). There was also a back entrance which was via Chapel Lane which came off Worksop Road and we used to go up that lane to the Girls Brigade and Band of Hope Meetings - the front was only used on Sundays and special occasions. It closed down about 1962-67 when the congregation moved to Prince of Wales Road. I have been looking for a while for a photo of it and it seems strange that there is no copy on the Sheffield Pictures site at the Sheffield Library. I am in New Zealand so personal searching of possible repositories is not an option. Hope someone can help. Second point saw a topic regarding Attercliffe Christ Church and the fact the chapel building, which was used as the church after the original had been bombed, was no longer in use - It was very sad to see the state of it. I married there in 1969 and my mother in 1947 - we both married on the same date - just a few years apart! Thanks Dorothy

    The Crimea Monument

    From The Star, regarding how Cambridge Street got its name... This street, which runs beside John Lewis, was first called Coalpit Lane. It was renamed to mark the laying of the foundation stone of the Crimea Monument at Moorhead by the Duke of Cambridge on October 21, 1857. The Duke, who was Commander-in-Chief of the army, died in 1904. The monument was moved to the Botanical Gardens in 1959.

    From "A Technical Survey of the Iron & Steel Works of Appleby-Frodingham Steel Company" published by Iron & Coal Trades Review in 1955:
  13. Hello, I saw on line, the below of image of manufacturer’s marks on a piece of non- bladed table cutlery. “Sheffield” is obvious, and the maker or possible retailer appears to be “M Bernard & Co”. There is another mark “X-NS” that could be a trademark. I looked on line for a bit more information and found few more useful images. Happily for some Forum members most were of bladed cutlery. Better than this they generated an actual trademark “Duracut”. I love a trademark because trademarks often give rise to or stem from the company’s “Works” name. There is in fact a post on our forum from 2010 mentioning a “Duracut Works” but predominately concerning a joinery tool making company “Robinson Hall Ltd” (I was unable to make a link work. The post is in this Made in Sheffield section) Here there is the reference concerning “Bernards” shown below, an extract from “Archaeological survey on Rockingham Street / Newcastle Street” “Duracut. Alan Wasden Limited, Hand Tool Manufacturer. Has a dedication stone which reads: "M Bernard & Co April 1939. This stone was laid on behalf of the above by Miss Shifra & Master Derek Hiller" The building had been used continually from 1939 to 2004 for the production of hand tools, notably hard steel punches and cold chisels.” The “Rockingham Street/Newcastle street” address of “Duracut works” is confusing as there is an images on line for “Duracut” works and it gives the address of “Rockingham Street at the junction with St Thomas Lane”. Though the company at this address may be a development as it is called “M Bernard & Son Ltd”. We have 2 addresses for 2 “M Bernard” companies just for confusion. Were they at different periods, using more or less of the same building? And what is there to indicate their production period? "M Bernard & Co” seemed to have been at “Duracut” works in April 1939 and the yellow and black handled carving set looks to me of the Art Deco period and likely product of the 1930’s. Robinson Hall Ltd was registered on 04/04/1942 at “Duracut” works so does this mean "M Bernard & Co” ceased production in 1942? The only other piece of dating I can easily find is going back to my first photo. That mark “X-NS” is not a proper trademark but was the mark allowed to be put on generic cutlery made for civilian use during WWII. That cutlery in my first photo item says that it was made in Sheffield but it had to have been made in Sheffield, as during WWII, cutlery production was concentrated in Sheffield and the Birmingham factories were changed exclusively to wartime production needs. This inference comes from the book by “John Price” (of Birmingham’s Arthur Price & Co), the “Cutlers Tale”, relating his family’s bemoaning not even being able to make generic type “XNS” cutlery items in the War when Sheffield makers could. There is a last image just to add to the interest and I wonder where it might fit in? Its cutlery does look of a slightly later style. I have found a few fragments of information about “M Bernard” and “Duracut”. I hope there is a lot more to be added from the Forum. Kalfred
  14. Hello everyone! I'm doing research on behalf of Tapton Hall about their history for the upcoming Heritage Day events. I'm mainly focusing on the Shore/Nightingale Family. Vickers Family and Wilson Family alongside the Masonic history. I have most of the information, but thought it was worth asking to see if there was anything I could add! If anyone has any information about these families, or any personal connection to the Hall then please let me know. Especially looking for photographs, maps or items which could be displayed.

  17. This pub stood on the corner of fell st & brightside lane may have been bombed or more likley demolished any info or a photo please
  18. Parker's Lane car park, which is on the corner of Whitham Rd and Parker's Lane, to the right of the Nottingham House pub, also has an area of grass with mini stone terracing for sitting on (I presume). There are also garden gateposts (see pic) with fairly recent railings with inlays which have various items embedded such as open razor, fork etc. Does anyone have any info on all or parts of this site ? If the gates led to a house it would be approximately numbered between 160-140 Whitham Rd. Cheers.

    Watson's Walk

    When I was a kidda, I was taken to see a film, may just have been The Towering Inferno, early 1970's, we queued for ages along Angel Street, and up a weird concrete Alley, called "Watson's Walk", I remember asking my Mam what that was all about; I recall asking my Mam about it in 2004, a year before she passed away; she (in 1970's) sort of passed the question by; nothing strange, but, she didn't know. Time passes backwards, like 20 plus years .... <star trek noises> ...... my mind begins to think about things, ...... Now then, I queued for a film at the ABC at Angel street, we queued along the frontage, then up a strange concrete walkway, heading towards Hartsheat, and the Dove and Rainbow, nothing strange yet ..... I recall the concrete tunnel, having a street name "Watson's Walk", I'm about eight, I forget it ..... Time passes, I gain weight and lose hair which has a sensible colour, I read about Sheffield history, and about Hartshead, and Meetinghouse Lane, and Campo Lane, all very related to the aforementioned Watson's Walk, I look at a map from 1780 (posted), I see what appears to be Watson's Walk, I begin to see history ulfolding before me eyes, Still like to know all about a concrete tunnel that retained its name 200 years laters on, so Watsons Walk, go on, you know you can find out everything about it and let me know, go on, go on .... Richard, shuttup !!!

    57 Howard Street

    Samuel, son of Luke and Sarah Mettam of Scholes was born on 29th September 1789 and baptised at Rotherham Minster on 25th October. On 21st October 1811 he married Hannah Mettam at Rotherham minster. His father Luke was a Haft Presser at Barker Pool in 1841. At the beginning of September 1832, during the cholera outbreak, a soup kitchen was opened on the premises of Roberts and Mettam at the bottom of Howard street. The disease had paralysed local trade and caused an upsurge in poverty. In August 1833 Mettam, Roberts and Mettam were operating from premises in Hollis Croft owned by the Trustees of the Hollis Hospital. In March 1826 the partnership between James Roberts and Samuel Mettam (unable to sign his name) (Wholesale and Retail Brewers) was dissolved. In 1837 Samuel, Horn Presser &c was living at Clough Cottage (White’s Directory) At the 1841 census Samuel was a Merchant living at Clough Bank with wife Hannah and offspring James 15,Caroline 20, Eliza 15, Sarah 13, and Maria 10, also married daughter Mary Anne Pearce and her husband. In 1851 they were still at Clough lane, St Marys, Samuel was a Horn Merchant employing 15 men, 3 boys and 3 girls. As well as wife Hannah, living with him was widowed daughter Mary Ann, son George Henry 30, born in Jamaica), James 28, Sarah Ann 23, Maria 20 and grandchildren Alfred, Hannah and Thomas. On 3rd April 1854 James Roberts of Roberts and Mettam, Barker Pool died aged 52. In March 1854 Samuel advertised that Samuel Mettam – Horn Cutter and Presser (late of the Firm of Roberts and Mettam Pool Square) has removed to Howard Horn Works, Howard Street. In October 1854 on the premises formerly occupied by Mettam and Roberts in Barkers Pool , a 10 horsepower beam engine was offered for sale. In December 1854 the partnership between James Roberts and Samuel Mettam (unable to sign his name) Haft Pressers and Merchants, was dissolved due to the death of Mr Roberts. In May 1856 Samuel (of the Howard horn works) entertained his workmen to a substantial dinner at Mr Hydes’ house, the Sportsman’s Inn on Paternoster Row. In December of that year, George Henry died aged 36, he was the only remaining living son of Samuel’s, and had worked for his father at Howard street. In December 1857 William and John Mettam of Rockingham lane, Umbrella Handle Manufacturers assigned all the material belonging to their partnership to John Merrill, Horn Merchant of Holly street, presumably to be sold for the benefit of their creditors. In January 1860 Samuel was advertising for Haft Pressers for his works at Howard street In 1871 at the census, Samuel was a widowed Horn Merchant, living at Cherry Mount (St Peters) with daughter Maria, her husband Thomas Hodgkinson who was a clerk for Samuel, and a grandson. On 25th July 1870 Samuel died aged 84 at Clough Cottage.

    Bullet Holes On Ecclesall Road

    We lived on Archer Lane (off Bannerdale Rd) in the 80's. Our semi had bullet holes in wall under the rear upstairs windows. The old lady who lived next door and who had lived there during the war maintained that they were anti aircraft rounds. Bullets returning to earth are always a problem, many people were killed and injured by 'friendly' anti aircraft fire. Wazzie Worrall
  23. Retirement brings on many extramural activities and having nearly completed my bucket list before the next bucket I see is the one I kick, I thought it prudent to see who's left out of my old class and where and WHO they are now ( many of the girls will obviously have a change of name ).. See link below http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?action=printdetails&keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;m00003 A few of our motley crew, I have sincerely missed since I left and I curiously would like to see how we all did after Smiley's J4 class and the ensuing 11+ dispersal.

    Botanical Gardens

    I think that may have been one of those childhood memories that we all have that get mixed up with stories we are told at the time, or possibly there was a previous model bear. There is some reference to dates further up this post and according to Picture Sheffield and the Botanical Gardens websites the bears were removed about 1870, possibly after a child fell in and was killed. ---------- http://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s11037&pos=2&action=zoom&id=14059 --------------- http://www.sbg.org.uk/portfolio-items/bear-pit/
