Famous People Who's Family Originated In Sheffield

Recommended Posts

Whilst watching an old WDYTYA last night with Bruce Forsyth, I fired up the census' on Ancestry and followed some of the research they were doing (I was VERY bored!) and found that (although it wasn't mentioned in the programme at all! maybe Brucey didn't want the world knowing his G-Grandfather was born in in lowly Sheffield) the chap who was the focus of the whole programme was born in Sheffield.

Joseph Forsyth Johnson, born 1839.

Any other famous bods that are never associated with Sheffield that we can pin down as having roots in our fair(!) city?
