H Sampson, Walkley Road, Sheffield Brass Stamp Maker


Recommended Posts

Hi 

I hope someone out there can help me with a search I am undertaking.

I have a few brass, I would imagine, bookbinding letter stamps. Plus a bookbinding roller wheel.

These few stamps/punches/wheel have the details:

H. SAMPSON, WALKLEY ROAD, SHEFFIELD Stamped into the brass body of the item.

I have searched the Kelly’s directories and other reference sites but cannot find any reference to H Sampson.

Hope someone may be able to help.

 

WOULD PUT IMAGE OF ONE OF THE ITEMS UP HERE BUT SADLY NO IDEA HOW TO DO SO.

 

NAME COULD POSSIBLY BE SAMISON

In 1911 his inquest heard that  Henry of 180 Walkley Road, aged 91 and ill, died due to the shock of being evicted from his daughter's house (also in Walkley Road) by the mortgage holder. He was buried at St Mary's, Walkley on 21st November 1911.

White's Directory for 1879 shows Henry Sampson as a "bookbinders' tool cutter":

Here is a link to a report of the inquest that TedW referred to, in the 'Sheffield Daily Telegraph' of 21 November 1911:

Poor Henry had evidently begun to suffer from "senile decay" (= dementia).
