  6. Any ideas why Cockshutts Lane in Oughtibridge is sometimes referred to as Jossey Lane (maybe Jossy) ? On all the maps I can view, it is always shown as Cockshutts 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?
  8. 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

    Brightside Lane - houses

    I have traced my Great Grandfather living at 5 Brightside Lane in 1871. i have an early map which does not show house numbers but on the assumption that road number start nearest the city centre i have estimated number 5 as being at the intersection with Newhall road to the left of the pub on the corner (see attached map). Does anyone have a map showing house numbers or any photographs of housing on Brightside Lane around this time?

    Anyone know what this is?

    Following on from Kidneystone's report, I've used Google Streetview to find a further six posts along the A6135. If anyone's passing and is able to get a picture of any of the following, please do send them to me via gpo-markers.derektp.co.uk ... the database is very nearly at 200 marker posts, so any others elsewhere in Sheffield (or further afield) also very much welcomed! :-) Here are the locations of the ones I've found but would like close-ups of: 252 High Greave 198 The Common, Ecclesfield 148 The Common, Ecclesfield 200 White Lane, Chapeltown 62 White
  11. Would love to know more about the houses which stood off Derbyshire lane (on the one-way section below the Scarsdale Road junction). On the 1897 map they are referred to as West Cliff and The Elms. Various gateposts and parts of old wall are still visible from the road. Presumably they were demolished in connection with the quarry/brickworks off Chesterfield Road (now Homebase etc).
  12. can anyone tell me exactly where it was as it no longer exists as far as i know

    Tram Locations

    First picture is definitely Vulcan Road, taken during the war, as the front fender is painted white and the tram has a headlamp mask. Looking at the second picture, it looks like a posed photo so I don't think the destination blinds will help. The tram seems to be on reserved track to one side of the road, so that makes it either Abbeydale Road near Millhouses Park, or Abbey Lane, but a quick look on Google maps doesn't immediately throw up anything obvious.

    Picture Sheffield Manor picture?

    Thanks to the air photo I think it's Prince of Wales Road and we are stood at the junction with Fitzhubert Road. If you look past the truck you can see a stone wall and that must have been a field wall from the farm days. As the Boot Houses were not built or just off shot. Then yes it's around 1925 for certain or earlier. Going on the location I would say the pylon structure could be the trees on Windy House lane around the pond that was there. Some of the houses on the Fairleigh side look still under construction, with windows not in place.

    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.

  17. Hello All, On Abbey Lane near the junction with Abbeydale Road South is this marker. It's close to the railway and I've seen similar railway company property markers. Is that what this is? I could only see one.
