Does anyone know if there was a nursing home on Daisy Bank in 1860 and has anyone got any information about it?

Thanks,

Lois.

Hi Lois

I've had a look on the 1861 census!  A couple of the dwellings on Daisy Bank have a nurse living within the household, but there doesn't appear to be a Nursing Home. The General Infirmary was located in the area!

Thanks Tozzin, 

It's  just strange that a man who owned a house on Fir Street Walkley had a property on Daisy Bank in 1864-5  according the Burgess Rolls. None of the family seem to known of it's existence so I wondered if it had been a nursing home as he died a few years later.
