Eastwood family tree - Darnall area


Recommended Posts

I am researching the Eastwood family tree, I have my father and grandfather

John Barry Eastwood = Father born 1938 sisters Brenda and Pauline

John William Eastwood = Grandfather born 1916 married to Ivy Eastwood nee King

 

Lived in the Darnall area John William and Ivy King lived on Gladstone street ,Darnall. And married May 1937.

 

I cannot find a Birth certificate for John William hence my request for any help

As far as I can see my great grandfather was called William Eastwood he is on John and Ivy's Marriage Cert.

 

Here's hoping

Hi thanks for your response.

 

All info I have on William is he lived at no 14 Gladstone Street in 1937. It says Labourer under Rank or Profession of Father on John William and Ivy King's marriage certificate. Ivy's dad Dick King lived at no 18 and was a Miner.

This looks like your great grandfather, William Henry 18, the only other William around in Sheffield in 1911 census seems to be a 12 year old from Nelson in Lancashire.

The older William (your gg grandad) on this census is stated as a Wood Yard Labourer so fits with the certificate. Note he also has a brother called John William.

Thanks for your help, I will go down this road and see if it all ties in.

 

Much appreciated

 

I have John Williams death certificate stated age at death 49 in Jan 1963 in Middlewood Hospital sad to say. Confusing me further as his birth year would be approx 1914 - 15

 

Thanks again for you responses

Ages on death certificates are the least reliable as someone else is giving the information to the registrar.

 

The admission registers and case records for Middlewood/South Yorkshire Asylum are deposited with Sheffield archives, you mght be able to get more informaton from consulting these. If you contatct the archives they will be able to tell you who you have to write to, to obtain permission.
