Anyone here from Attercliffe?

Recommended Posts

Hi Mickr, My wifes maiden name was Wilson, lived with her mom & dad & brother Maurice, at no 15. Maurice was also a mate of Richard"s, ( Ray"s brother, ). Ray also had an older brother Brian, ( i think ?. ) Battises shop was the first in their yard, then the Myres, then George & Winnie Ledger, ( Marges auntie & uncle ) who we lived with for a couple of years or so. then Marges family. Then over the wall in the next yard, the only family i can remember was the Haywoods. Gorden, their son used to drink in The Cutlers with us, as did "Sonny" & Kath Wildgoose, who i think lived close on towards your house. I think Mick Willets must have lived somewhere across the road from you. As you say different times then,!!. But i wouldn "t have had it any other way.

 

Hi Gethro/ I remember Maurice Wilson and I think I can remember Margaret. Did she used to hang out with Marie Petty (who lived in Steven Haywards yard) and Linda Haslam who lived in the same yard as thr Lemanskis or with the girls off Bodmin St? That yard was right across the street from us. Mrs Lemanski was the daughter of (?) Brown who owned the little converted shop on the street and they had a son - Stefan. Are Sonny and Kath Wildgoose the parents of David Wildgoose? Dave and I were good buddies and I have been trying to find him for many years now. I heard that he and quite a few people from the area moved the new housing on Greenland Rd, but it's difficult to track people down from here in British Columbia. The Wildgooses used to live in the same yard as the Willets. I remember Mick - his dad used be a very good piano player. Hope this is not too many questions for you Gethro and thanks for the information you've already passed on.

These players loved the game of football and played for an ordinary working man's wage , better than going down the pit or steelworks. Now you have someone with half the talent of those you mention being transfered for millions.

 

Can you remember Len Badger ? Sam Elliss, does he ring a bell?

Can anyone remember some of the ' characters ' on the Cliff ?

 

I remember someone who delivered coal and never washed his face and walked about with his mouth open. He lived on one of the streets off Coleridge Road. Can anyone supply more details of him and other characters living in Attercliffe in the 1950 /60s.

Oo Tara that's exciting. There was a Florence Biggin in my family tree I think. Can you tell me what you knew about them please?

 

Cant remember too much but i seem to remember they had Greyhounds , probably had racing ones.I think they lived near the Grimesthorpe area.

The daughter Florence is probably around late 50s. she always wore pretty floaty dresses .

I know they were quite well to do financially. Dont know how else to put it.
