I am researching my father's side of the family. He was born (Walter Hopkin(s) in April 1899 in Sheffield. His mother was Mary Ellen Hopkin(s) [nee Jones] she was born in 1879 + or -. She married my grandfather [also] Walter Hopkin(s) in Nov 1898 at St. Luke's (??) parish church in Dyer's Hill, Sheffield. I believe she died in 1958 in Sheffield. Family history says she was originally born in Ireland (unknown as to the location) and her mother was a dancer. Her father was a seaman. Again just talk was that she was sent to stay with relatives in the UK (Liverpool ??). At some stage she lived in 93 South Street, Sheffield and her husband lived at 73 South Street. I am trying to find out her birthplace and if the family verbal history is true about her being sent to live in England by her mother. I have found a 1891 Census record of a Mary Ellen Jones (aged 14) living with the Hemmings family and working as a general servant at their house 88 Blake Street, Nether Hallam, Sheffield. I had relatives living in the Sheffield area, but sadly have lost touch with them. If anyone reading these notes is from my family please get in touch. To maybe assist a bit more my father (1899-1979) married a Jessie Drabble around 1920. They had son who died in tragic circumstances aged abt 20 months (bath of scalding water). I have a family history page on Ancestry.co.uk.
