Clough House On Clough Lane S10

Recommended Posts

On old OS maps 'Clough House' appears about half way up Clough Lane (on the Porter Valley section of the Sheffield Round Walk).  Does anyone know anything this place?  Was it a farm and who lived there?  At the top of Clough Lane there was a farm called Bower Hill which I believe was demolished in the 1960's but I can't find any info about Clough House.

Between (at least) 1886 and 1900 it was the home of Edward Winder who managed the estates of the Duke of Norfolk.

In 1907 it came up for sale or let, described as 10 rooms with bath and WC, hot and cold water.

In 1912 the occupant was advertising for a manservant with knowledge of Darraq cars.

In 1918 the home of Dutch flautist Marritz Benavente.

In 1931 the home of Dr & Mrs Murphy.

Thank you for this, that is very interesting. The house seems to have been larger and more modern than I had imagined it!

It would be very interesting to been any photos of it that might exist or where it might be possible to find some further information.

In 1871, Clough House was a school.  Richard Bowling was the school master and his wife Emma is with him.

There were six assistant teachers, twenty two pupils and six domestic servants.

 

In 1851 and 1861 the occupants were George Hounsfield/Howfield and his wife Marie, in 1851 George was a Coal Master

and in 1861 he was a Banker.

I’ver done a bit of digging around on the Picture Sheffield website and it looks like there are two different Clough Houses! The school where Richard Bowling was headmaster was on Clough Road near Shoreham St and I suspect the info from sadbrewer also relates to this Clough House. 
The Clough House I’ve looking at is on Clough Lane in S10 and I’ve now found a picture and a bit more info but it would be interesting to know more if anyone can help?

Hi redruby, I can certainly tell you some HISTORY of this house.

Originally it was Clough House Farm ,  not sure when it was built, my guess early 1800s.

( It was  entered on several census with different titles and lane, but it is the same.)

By 1851 census it was not listed as a Farm  just as CLOUGH HOUSE, Fullwood. ( Note ll in Fulwood )

             "            "        head / George Gregory    wife / Dorothy    sons / George/ Sam /John /Charles   daughter/ Pamela

In 1871 census it was listed  MARK LANE, CLOUGH COTTAGE.( Mark Lane is off lower Clough Lane.)

             "            "        head / George Moseley    wife /Ann    son / Fred   daughter / Martha

In 1881 census it was CLOUGH HOUSE, CLOUGH LANE, MARK LANE

           "              "       head/Daniel Harrison   wife/Isabella

In 1891 census it was CLOUGH HOUSE, MARK LANE.

            "             "       head/George Fox Broomhead   wife/Hannah   daughters/Elizabeth/Susannah/Esther/Annie/Mary

                                     son/Joshua

 In 1901 census it was CLOUGH LANE.

             "             "      head/George Fox Broomhead   wife/Hannah   daughters/Susan/Esther/Annie   

                                    sons/Joshua/George/Thomas

The Broomhead family were the last residents to live there, and it was demolished in the 1950s.
