And across the road a run of large interesting houses.

This one possibly one of the grandest semi-detached houses in the area! Now offering 'luxury' bedsits at £40 per week - sounds a bargain! Not too sure about the windows!

Next up 'Kashmir House' - as is, but what was it called it originally?

I'd call this Burngreave but anyway a photo diary of the renovation of the Vestry Hall - if you thought it was bad outside!

Anyone know what happened to these ?

from Wikipedia

There have been small finds of Roman coins throughout the Sheffield area, for example 19 coins were found near Meadowhall in 1891,[15] 13 in Pitsmoor in 1906,

Weston Park Museum Store ??

The citation is The Antiquary XLII (November): p406. 1906. If you were in th US you could read it directly in Google Books.

Central Reference Library will have it but you'll need to pre-order it from store. There used to be a way to read such articles via the NMR website, when I get the time I'll see if I can find my way there again ;-)

Also worth checking the index to the Hunter Archaeological Society volumes in Local Studies.

Edit : Perhaps this is the Pitsmoor find ?

Description

A number of Roman silver coins together with sherds of Derbyshire-ware, presumed to be fragments of the urn that had contained the coins, were found in 1906 in digging the foundations of a house on the S.W. side of Scott Road, 200 yds. N.W. of the Roman Rig and near the crest of the hill. The houses numbered 126 & 128 are named 'Roman Villas' and bear the date 1907. The hoard was dispersed, but 35 coins, Vitellius to Marcus Aurelius (AD 69-180), all that could be recovered, are now in Sheffield City Museum and have the accession numbers J. 1906. 25. A late 2nd century hoard.

Couldn't find my map of Pitsmoor but have finally worked out what this building was .

Old cobbled lane in front

Across the road from the Tollbar and hiding behind the modern facarde of Unigraph is the former Pitsmoor Church Day School opened in 1836 with money raised by public subcription and a grant from the 1833 School Bill. Classrooms were given by T.W Watson of Shirecliffe Hall. The school pre-dated ChristChurch by 14 years and for this period served as the venue for worship during this time.

The school was temporaily closed because of bombing and was eventually sold for the sum of £3,500. Prior to Unigraph the building was used by Wigfalls as a furniture store.

Thanks very much Neddy - there are very interesting - always good to put names to places and here is a face!

'Canon Chorlton, my friend some years before my ordination, as he was the friend of many other young men, was another of the best-known and widely-respected clergymen of the city. After being second master of the Sheffield Grammar School, he succeeded, in 1872, Henry Barlow as Vicar of Pitsmoor. He continued there to the time of his death, a period of nearly forty years. In 1905, Archbishop Maclagan appointed him to a Canonry at York, an honour which he highly prized. For thirty-six years he was one of the local secretaries of the Bible Society, in the interests of which he laboured most earnestly. Warm-hearted, broad-minded, genial, and sympathetic, he had the confidence of all who knew him. His Church views were decidedly evangelical, and he was a total abstainer and non-smoker. A favourite illustration in his earnest temperance and mission addresses was that his parish began with "The Barrel" (a public-house now pulled down), and ended with the Workhouse, then at the extreme end of his parish, but now in St. Cuthbert's. On the Sunday of his death, in November, 1911, although seventy-three years of age, he was apparently in the best of health, and had arranged to preach twice for the Church Pastoral Aid Society, when God's finger touched him, and before eventide his earthly life ceased, and he had entered upon the higher service.'

I aslo assume the Jeffcocks at 249 are possibly some relation of Thomas William Jeffcock DL JP who lived at Shire House (Shire Green) and who is remembered by the nurses's home in Ecclesfield. His uncle had been Sheffield's first mayor in 1843. TW died in 1900.

Interesting there is a Maria Jeffcock recorded on the water fountain in Ecclesfileld who appears to have died in 1883 - so I imagine this is her above in 1881.

Following her death Thomas William married a Hannah Maria widow of F. Vickers of Dykes Hall in 1892.

I think the Helen M Wilson in the list could be the one who the Helen Wilson Settlement Rutland Hall is named after.
