Heeley is about as much as I know. Let's see if anyone can narrow down the location.

"John Brownell of Heeley, Sheffield in the parish of Sheffield, scythesmith, (brother and heir of Henry Brownell, scythesmith, deceased) to Henry Brownell his youngest son. A close in Heeley, Sheffield formerly called the Two days work and now Nether Dole, with a wood adjoining, for 10/-d"

There was a small wood near Heeley Common called Brownell's Plantation so perhaps the Nether Dole field is the one adjacent to that (15 - 3.390 acres). It was there on the 1850s map too but not shown very clearly on my copy.

The 1950s Geographia Map (part 8) has Maugherhay marked as being in the School Lane area of Norton.

EDIT

SteveHB's 1931 map also has Maugerhay in the School Lane area of Norton.

It looks like the footpath to Maugerhay still exists,

but Spring House/Cottage has gone.

When I was a kid I used to wonder where Duplicate was, there were always a lot of buses and trams going there, especially at tea time.

Always though that was a bit daft. Unless you knew what the destination of the previous tram/bus was how could you guess the 'duplicate' destination ?

Funny you should word it like that.

My 4x Great grandfather, Jonathan Higginbottom, lived at Maugerhay

Interestingly it appears on census records and the IGI as "Margathey" rather than Maugerhay, possibly because the enumerator wrote down what the locals said to him, an insight into the regional dialect perhaps.

Of course it was Stuart that sorted out for me that "Margathey" was in fact Maugherhay.

The lane is quite definately still there as shown by these photos, however none of the original cottages seem to be and it is now a private lane, firmly gated off at the bottom end.

Looks like it, although not very well maintained it is a private road but does have a council roadsign with S8 Sheffield designation, - although in my ancestors time this would have been in Derbyshire.

I think the original road and its associated cottages and area would have been part of the Oakes Park / Bagshaw estate.

There was once an Inn at Maugerhay ..

At Maugerhay is a free school, situate a little to the S.E. of Norton, where about 80 children are now educated.

Formerly here was an inn and bowling green, much frequented

by pleasure parties from Sheffield; but it is now a private residence.

Near this to the S.E. is The Oaks, a handsome mansion situate in a fine park,

the seat and property of William John Bagshawe. Esq.
