red mail John Turner Family, Beighton Lane - 1881
I'm looking for information on the family of John and Elizabeth (Bingham) Turner who lived in Woodhouse until 1881, when they left for the United States. John (born in Woodhouse about 1832) was a surveyor of roads and new buildings in 1881. He is believed to have been the son of William Turner, a publican, who once operated a pub called The Gate Inn on Station Road in Woodhouse. Elizabeth (also born about 1832 in Norton, Derbyshire) was the daughter of Richard Bingham, a scythe smith.
red mail Smith family Pashleys Cottages/Sheffield Road
Does anyone have grand or ggrandparents who lived in these areas around 1920? I'm hoping to find any info about my grandad, George Smith. He & my grandma, Beatrice came to live in Woodhouse between 1918-20. My grandmother was born in Sheffield but spent some time living & working in London, where she & my grandad married. They had 3 children, Nancy, Edna & Bob, who were all very young when my grandad was killed in an explosion while at work. His occupation was in munitions work, which he could have begun after being invalided out of the army. They moved from Pashley's Cottages to Sheffield Road in 1920 but it must have been in the early part of the year the accident occurred as my grandmother married again in April to Jim McCallum. The youngest child, Bob was 4 months old at the time. In 1924 Mary McCallum (half-sister) was born and the family had moved to Coisley Road. If anyone has heard of the family and could give me any info at all I'd be more than grateful. I'd be especially interested to learn anything abt my grandad George's family - where they came from, name of his mother or siblings etc. The only info I have is his father's name was Francis and he was a farmer. Thanks for any help, RB
