1821

Joseph Duckenfield, timber merchant, Heighton

A couple of thoughts on this one, merely for consideration.

1st - It could be a miss-transcribe of Beighton.

2nd - There is currently a Heighton View in Aughton, so perhaps there was once an area of that name. What makes me think of this as a possible is that there were a few Duckenfield families in Aughton on the 1891 census.

"and at that time Broomhall street, or 'Black Lamb's lane,' as it was called, was considered rather a dangerous place to go along at night."

Or

Janson Street, at Attercliffe, originally had the charming name of Black Lamb Lane

Rootsweb

Take your pick

Edit::

These are from Reminiscenses of old Sheffield

Close to Fitzwilliam street I
"have seen growing as fine a crop of wheat as ever gladdened the heart of
a Yorkshire farmer ; and at that time Broomhall street, or 'Black Lamb's
lane,
' as it was called, was considered rather a dangerous place to go
along at night."

"believing that the military would soon put in an appearance, he began to make his way homewards. In Black Lamb lane (now Broomhall street, but then a narrow country road), his retreat was, however, intercepted by the approach, at full speed, with noise of jingling scab- bards,"

up the road passing riverlin dams , towards laydybower, a few buildings on the RHS including what I was told was an industrial school, may be a home for wayward kids

Gin Stables for the Duke of Norfolk's collieries, right hand side of City / Intake Road going out of town. Gin Stables Lane became Stafford Road. Lots of photos are available on Picture Sheffield. The 1950's OS map shows it as a Coal and Vehicle depot - so same function as on the 1850's map!

An uncle of mine and his workmate were knocked into a large vat of very hot pickling acid when the slings holding steel bars gave way.

He was the lucky one and managed to swim to the side where other workmates dragged him out and hosed him down. He was hospitalised for a long time.

I can't remember the exact details but I don't think his workmate survived.

He continued working at the same job for at least another twenty years but suffered eye problems and eventual blindness in his old age.
