The Merry Heart Hotel.

Recommended Posts

Waterside Echo

In the late 1940s I can remember going with my mum to see a distant relative who she had not seen for years. She lived in a row of very old cottages and we were told it was near a pub called the Merry Heart. When we found her the cottages were at the top on the left hand side of Brunswick Road.  I think she lived in the end one before the road went down under the railway bridge. Does anyone have any names of the people who lived in that row. I seem to remember they were pulled down in the early 50s

OK here's a shot at it - If the cottage was number 50 (see map) - then in 1939 it was occupied by James Welborn a steel moulder (see 1939 Census sheets for the row 50 -70

No neddy, but she was related to and could have had the same name as the people who ran the small hardware shop on the corner Roe Lane/Pitsmoor Road. That would have been in the mid 50s.

At the time we went in the late 40s the cottage we visited was not right at the side of the road. Looking at your map I would say it could have been 62 or 64 Perhaps the others at the end nearest the bridge had been bombed or demolished.

Thanks to neddy and Edmund things are starting to come together now. William Warrender. On the rare occasion we saw him was know to us as uncle bill, when we  asked who's uncle he was we were told not to ask. My mum once let it slip, and it was only once, that the lady we had been to see was my grand father William Taylor's sister, as far as she knew they were both born in the workhouse and then put in an orphanage, but say nothing. A bit sad really but I suppose that is how it was in those days. Thanks again. W/E.

Just found an old family photo card from the early 1920s. Its addressed to Mrs and Miss Elliott. Southey Green. Wadsley Bridge. Sheffield.   Me and my grandma [William Taylor's wife] used to visit an old lady in a row of cottages just round from Southey bus terminus in the 1950s. I think her first name was Hettie. The cottages were pulled down shortly after she passed away in the late 50s.  W/E.
