Has anybody got any history on George Maleham and Thomas Yeomans? I have the basics of their company but I find it strange they lived together with Thomas`s father John on Daniel Hill Upperthorpe but they continued to live together at Victoria Road Broomhall, there`s no mention of wives or children so were they ***? If anyone has any information on the company or photos of their Bowden Street  / Milton Street works it would be much appreciated.

Don't worry tozzin, they both married!  The Malehams were only visiting the Yeomans on census day, not living there. Hope the following helps:

Henry Maleham (born 1810) was a Chemist & Druggist at 4 West Bar in 1837 then 7 West Bar after 1846. He was married to Sarah (born 1815) in 1851 at Upperthorpe. By 1861 they were at Oxford Street. Henry William Maleham was in partnership with his father Henry (Chemist at 7 West Bar) and the partnership was dissolved in 1877. Henry Maleham senior, retired chemist died at Crookesmoor Road on New Years Eve 1887.  Henry’s brother was  George Maleham, ironmonger , gas fitter, gun maker & dealer in gunpowder, shot, caps, and flasks was at 3 West Bar in 1837 and at 5 West Bar from 1841. George’s son Charles Henry Maleham, a  gun maker of 5 West Bar, in 1873 obtained a patent for improvements in breech loading ‘snap-action’ firearms and died 11th June 1934 at 12 Endcliffe Crescent.

Henry senior and Sarah’s second son was George Edgar Maleham born in 1850.  In 1871 George E was a manufacturer’s apprentice and was with his sister Sarah Elizabeth Maleham visiting John Yeomans at Daniel Hill, Upperthorpe.  Also present were John’s sons Charles Yeomans (born 1850) a merchant and manufacturer, and Thomas Shillitoe Yeomans (born 1862) a merchant’s apprentice. Sarah Elizabeth would later marry Thomas S Yeomans.

On19th September 1878 George Edgar youngest son of Henry Maleham, of Claremont Crescent – married Edith (born 1854),), elder daughter of John Yeomans Daniel Hill Upperthorpe at Friends Meeting House.  At the 1881 Census George Edgar was living at 49 Victoria Road, a Cutlery Manufacturer employing 25 men, 9 boys and 3 females.

In 1919 George Edgar was Hon Sec of the Sheffield Division of Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Families Association.

George Edgar Maleham died 6th Feb 1922 at 88 Grove Road Millhouses, and left £646 8s.

John Yeomans (born 1823) was a solicitor living at Upperthorpe and later Elm-Field, Northumberland Road (which was built for him) and died 18th April 1887 at St Leonards on Sea.  He had been the Town Clerk of Sheffield since 1859. When he died of congestion of the lungs he was in London for the hearing of the Water Bills in the House of Lords. Only at the conclusion of the hearings did he seek medical help and was told he could not remain in foggy London, so took lodgings by the sea.  His sons were Charles Yeomans and Thomas Shillitoe Yeomans

  In Q2 1878 Thomas Shillitoe Yeomans married Sarah Elizabeth Maleham. After her death in 1879, Thomas remained a widower in 1881 and was living with his father in Cleveland street.   Thomas remarried (Gertrude) and by 1891 they had moved to Steade Road, and were still therev in 1908. Thomas S Yeomans died on Boxing Day 1940 at 10 Mylnhurst road.

In Geoff Tweedale’s book he states both George Edgar Maleham and Thomas Shillitoe we’re living on Daniel hill with Thomas’s father in 1871, he goes on to say they both lived on Victoria Road  but they could have been living at No’s 49 George and Thomas at No 51, even though George is listed at No 43, but nowhere does it mention marriage for either of them. Wasn’t Henry Maleham the Gunsmith?

I did an article on George Maleham last year, his shotguns are still sought after today. One of Maleham rifles.
