Stevensons of Beeley Street - Family tree thread can you help?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to sort out a knot in my family tree. Is there anyone out there who had an Edward Foster Stephenson in their family? He lived with his wife Annie and his son Edward Arnold Stephenson in Tullibardine Road, Ecclesall. He was born in 1864 and died in 1931. He worked as a silversmith and/or silver journeyman.

I have tried all the regular sites which I usually use but am finding out that it is much harder to find things out for the 19 century because of the 100 year privacy laws. So, I thought that I would give Sheffield Forum a whirl. I find the people on here are so helpful whatever or whoever you're looking for.




The only bit of information (which you probably already have) is that his wife was Annie Elizabeth Bland, they married in December 1888.

There may be Bland researchers as well as Stephenson ones.

Hi grannypat - in case this is helpful, looking at birth and death indexes it seems that Edward Foster Stephenson was born at Ackworth in Jul-Sep 1963 and died in Sheffield in Jan-Mar 1930. Here is the 1911 census page; the Kelly's directories I have from 1931 to 1940 show Mrs Annie Elizabeth Stephenson at 71 Tullibardine Road. It seems that Annie died in 1941 and Arnold Stephenson is shown at that address in later directories. The 1939 Register shows Annie and Arnold at 71 Tullibardine Road.

Hi Hillsbro,


Thanks for that. You are always so dependable. The thing is that I was hoping to find someone who is actually in the family and who might know the kind of facts which you can't find on the internet. If only someone had a time machine so that I could go back to the 1920s and find everything out, that I need to know, for myself. Hey-ho! :cry:

Is there anyone out there who has family connections to Beeley Street? My mum and his brothers and sister grew up on that street and lived there until the early 1930s. They all went to St. Mathias school. I know that it's a long time ago but someone's grandparents must have lived there. I would like to find out as much as I can about the people who lived there and what life was like then. I shall keep my fingers crossed so please reply asap. 😄
