You are forgetting the cattle market. People bringing in the sheep etc, easy to lose one I would have thought. The person in charge of the Pinfold was the Pinder. And seeing that's a common name, even in Sheffield, a high turnover rate in the job! Not many people would like you with that job :(

I don't know why this stuck in my mind. Wonder where?

"There are about 2,500 cows stalled inside the City, the remainder of the milk supply coming from about 6,000 cows in Derbyshire and the West Riding of Yorkshire."

Hello Ethel,

here are some address for George YATES, photographer:

1861

32 Hall Carr St Brightside Bierlow (carpenter & joiner)

1881

58 Spital Hill Brightside Bierlow (photographic artist)

1891

652 Grimesthorpe Rd Brightside Bierlow (photographer)

I could not find any instances of a middle name for George. He is plain

George in the GRO marriage index and also a possible baptism in the IGI.

Spital Hill used to be part of Occupation Road.

Hugh in Sheffield

Sevenairs Road, Beighton - Apparently this got it's name from a local doctor who used to say there was "Seven Airs" in the countryside in that area. I got this information from the old Picture book "Around Hackenthorpe"
