Old Ecclesfield


Recommended Posts

Tony Moorwood

My family came from Ecclesfield, and I know that there are references to them in a book called "An Old Ecclesfield Diary" by Septimus Lister which is long out of print. Does anyone know whether it is possible to get a copy, perhaps a scanned one, or else whether any library or other organisation has copies of the book? Any information would be really appreciated.

I've had a quick look on the internet for you.  There is some online information here.  The only library holding a copy in the UK appears to be the British Library.  I don't know if interloans can get it for you when the libraries reopen, failing that there is rather a nice railway leading down to London!  The OCLC number is 771623301.  More hopefully, the Universities of Sheffield and of York appear to have microfilmed versions, but the entry isn't 100% clear so do check.  The Family History Library of the Mormon Church holds a microfilmed copy in Salt Lake City which is "digitally available online" but "viewable with additional restrictions".

Interesting that WorldCat doesn't know about that one.

Sadly not the book you are looking for but Is this any good to you about Nathaniel Moorwood.

Take a look at this

http://www.*****.co.uk/Old_diary.htm

someone seems to have transcribed a small extract of the diary into a site dedicated to the history of Ecclesfield, which may also be of interest to you

http://www.*****.co.uk/index.htm

it does say in the further reading section of this site that the diary is available for viewing in the local studies library

(Despite the asterisks, the links do work - it’s the profanity filters at work again 😁)
