In he 1940's, Paul TUNNICLIFFE (may be Anthony Paul) was a pupil teacher at All Saints School, Boyne Hill, Maidenhead. He came from Yorkshire and lodged at the vicarage; he would have been late teens. He was very well liked by pupils and staff, and some friends and I would like to know how his life fared when he left Maidenhead. Does anyone know of him? Thankyou, Bridget.

James Edmund Whitehead
James Edmund 1st appears on the 1841 census in Salford with his father, Edmund, stepmother and half sister. I can track him forward on the censuses - living mainly in Hulme (now part of Greater Manchester) on the censuses to 1891, working as a house painter and/or paper hanger. He dies in Hulme in 1893. James Edmund was born around 1833 and, according to the censuses, in Sheffield. I'm trying to find his baptism and the marriage of his parents. I've no idea of his mother's name. His father Edmund was born in Ainsworth, Lancashire around 1810 and is described variously as a clerk, auctioneer's clerk, book keeper, woollen draper. I know he married the boy's stepmother in February 1839 in Eccles so James Edmund's mother must have died by then. Edmund's own father, James, was apparently a calico printer. Is anyone searching for this boy or has come across him? Any clues would be useful.

red mail Fletcher Frankish Grainger
My Great Grandmother was Hannah Grainger and was born in Clifton, York in 1885.Parents Charles and Martha. In 1911 she was a servant for the Nelson family in the Manor House, Heworth, York. The Head of the house was Martha Nelson a widow age 78, her daughter Gertrude 45, Son Frederick Oswald 44 and daughter Blanch 33; all single, Frederick was a cashier with the London Joint Stock Bank. My Great Grandfather Francis William Frankish also worked as a servant there. He was a groom and a gardener and 10 years older than Hannah. At the time of the census they were listed as single, but they soon married as Hannah was pregnant with my Grandfather William Henry Frankish. Sometime between 1911 and 1914 they moved to Sheffield where they had 2 more children Emily in 1914 and Harry in 1921. In 1926 Francis William Frankish died. In 1933 Hannah re-married, she had been boarding/ lodging with Thomas Fletcher and they eventually married. My mother knew Hannah as "Grandma Fletcher" My main Interest is to find out anything about Thomas Fletcher; other than his name, their date of marriage and living in Sheffield I know nothing. There is a possibility that he had been married before and might have had a son called Nelson (or Nelson maybe a middle name) (alternatively the name Nelson we have could refer to the family Hannah worked for)). Anything about Thomas Fletcher and Hannah Frankish nee Grainger would be most helpful I know it's not a lot to go on. Hannah died in 1957 (ish) maybe later. My lesser interest is to know anything about her time with the Nelson family in the manor house with my Great Grandfather.
red mail Sarah Ellen Gomersall/Walker
I am struggling to flesh out the life of my Great Great Grandmother, Sarah Ellen Gomersall nee Walker and would be very grateful if anyone can help. She was born in Goldsborough, Knaresborough in 1844, married Samuel Gomersall,a silversmith in Sheffield, in 1873 and they lived in Sheffield. He died in 1880 and she and her son, Frederick Walker Gomersall moved to Manningham, Bradford by the 1881 census. The last trace I have of her before her death in 1926 in Wetherby, is 1891, when she still lived in Bradford. I know she never apparently re-married but I can find no trace of her anywhere in the 1901 or 1911 census. I am very keen to find out what she was doing during that period as I am positive she did not remain in Bradford. There is a chance she returned to SHeffield, though I have not found proof in the censuses. Any help gratefully received.
red mail James and Sarah Mitchell
I am looking for information about James and Sarah Mitchell living in Sheffield in the late 19th early 20th century. The had a daughter Elizabeth b1889 - no other children.

I am looking for information about descendants of James, Sarah and Elizabeth. There are several possibilities for Elizabeth's marriage as Mitchell a very common name in Sheffield. She was still single and living at home in the 1911 census. Does anyone know about this family or are related to them?

Researching my grandparents, Charles (d 1954) and Alice (d 1978) Allen, who lived at 53 Carlton Road in Sheffield 6. Charlie's father was Joseph Clifton Allen (died 1924) and his mother was Sarah Helen (nee Hill) (also died 1924), daughter of James Hill, corn miller of Attercliffe. With his brothers, Charlie managed the steel forge at the end of Leppings Lane, where Law Bros. later built their garage. Mollie Gilbody, Charlie's niece, has recently given me some information about the forge, but I would like to hear from anyone who remembers the forge (I have only very vague memories of it). Also, anyone who knew either Alice or Charlie, or maybe there are some old photos around. All information gratefully received. I can reciprocate with photos of Charlie and Alice, and their children (all deceased).
red mail Clement Hill and wife Mary Jane Fox
I am researching Clement Hill (born Clowne, Derbyshire - born 18 Oct 1871; died 26 Sept 1943), son of my g. g. grandfather James Hill, corn miller of Attercliffe windmill, Amberley Street. Clement's wife had a beautiful stain glass window, called "Truth", installed in Upper Chapel, Norfolk Street, Sheffield. This week, I have spoken with my old colleague, Rev Geoff Usher, who is Minister at Upper Chapel. however, Geoff says that church does not have any records of Clement, Mary or of the window. He suggested trying the Sheffield Archives. Does anyone out there have any information about either the window, or about the life and times of Clement and Mary? They must have been quite wealthy, and maybe influential in their time. And was Mary's grandfather, William Rhodes, a minister of religion, maybe in the Unitarian church?
