Sea breeze terrace

Recommended Posts

I have 19th Century ancestors shown living at Richmond on census returns.

Would Sea Breeze Terrace be the original location of the village of Richmond ?


You may be able to trace when they were built because the street was named after a horse that won one of the classic races,the Derby i think.

Good reply Kidorry !

Just thought to look in that excellent publication by Peter Harvey ' Street Names of Sheffield ' Page 131. Seabreeze Terrace. The legend is that the man who built it had a good win on a horse called Sea Breeze. The horse, referred to in record books as Seabreeze, all one word, won The Oaks and The St Ledger in 1888 but it is unlikely that anybody won a large amount of money on it in either of these races. It started at 7-4 in The Oaks and 5-2 in the Leger.


Can we assume then the location was built sometime after 1888 ?
