Ash Farm Gleadless


Recommended Posts

History dude

As part of my interest in the surname Appleyard (in the fact I actually am one) I came accross this family who lived at the farm. Sadly it's not good news for them. They crop up a lot on the Sheffield Indexers burial records, were a lot of their children died very young. Perhaps that well water wasn't too good!

Anyway Edward and Sarah had at least 7 kids. Emma b1828, Mary Ann b1832, William b1830, Sarah b1834, Ann b1835, Ellen b1836, and Hannah b1840.

Another branch Joseph (b1816) married Mary b1820 they seem to have at least one child Edward b1860.

I also found a discription of the farm in the 1881 census. Mary Appleyard - Head - Widdow - aged 64 - farmer 100 acres employs 2 labourers, born Sheffield.

Edward Appleyard - son - unmarried - aged 20 - Farmer.

Martha Hill - servant - aged 17.

Henry Tatton did some drawings of it and calls it Appleyard farms. But I can't post them on here for copyright reasons.

PS they are not directly related to me.

The old sports ground adjacent to the farm, reverts back to nature.
