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

Hancock albert henry
Can anybody tell me anything about Albert Henry Hancock. I do know he married my g grandmother Nellie Stubbs in 1916, I know his dad was Joseph Thomas Hancock and that they lived at Victoria Road, Woodhouse other than that nothing - did Albert and Nellie have any kids and where did they live. Somebody must know something please get in touch.
Hutchinson, Woodhouse
George Hutchinson father to Sarah Ann born 1868. Sarah Ann married Joseph Stubbs and they lived ay Sheffield Road, Woodhouse. Somewhere along the line a Victor Hutchinson suddenly appeared and we seem to think that Sarah Ann brought him up as a lad. Victor's proper surname was Barthlomew but his birth cert shows the addition of Hutchinson in a different handwriting. His son as confirmed he was brought up by an elderley couple (Sarah Ann and Joseph)but we can't make a definite link to this family. Can anybody fill us in? Going back to George I think he lived on Coisley Hill at around 1868. Please rack your brains, ask relatives if they remember anything, we've come to a dead end at present but would like to find something definite to solve this mystery. There was also mention of a 'sister' to Victor and we seem to think she was linked into the Hutchinson family somewhere along the line.
Looking for info on Eleonor Stubbs, one of 3 children to Joseph and Sarah Ann Stubbs. Eleonor/Ellenor born c1895. Did she have any family, did she marry, when did she die??????
