THE SANBY FAMILY IN SHEFFIELD 1901

SANBY George (1864 -  26 Son Widower Edge Tool Forger Sheffield Yorkshire
SANBY Jane (1869 -  21 Daughter Daughter   Sheffield Yorkshire
               

The main fact that stands out in the data is that George, now a widower, must have married and then lost his wife through bereavement at sometime between 1881 - 1891. There is a record of a GEORGE SANBY getting married in the June quarter of 1887 in Sheffield (PRO ref Vol9c Page 631) but to date I have been unable to ascertain the name of his wife. 

The photograph was taken in 1906 and shows South Road. The road on the right is Freedom Road and the pub on the left is the Freedom House. My great great grandfather HENRY SANBY lived in the houses to the right of the photograph. In the late summer of 2005, I ascertained that HENRY SANBY lived until he was 77 years of age, dying in the December quarter of 1906 (PRO Ref  Death Ecclesall Bierlow Vol 9C page 194) 

Ten years later in 1901 HENRY SANBY (my great great grandfather) and his son GEORGE were living four doors away at 378 SOUTH ROAD Walkley Sheffield (Ref RG13/4344 Page 36). Jane had left the household in 1893 to marry ALFRED NALL.  George had not remarried in the intervening ten years.

In the Burgess Rolls (Register of Electors) for the South Road Polling District in 1921 there is an entry for GEORGE and a ALICE SANBY at 378 South Road.  George would have been 56 at the time the register was taken. ALICE may have been his second wife but it is also possible she may have been one of his his nieces. It is purely speculation at the moment. 

Note

There is a birth  of a GEORGE HENRY SANBY who died within months of being born (Birth - Ecclesall Bierlow March 1898 9C Page 418 - Death Sheffield June 1898 9C page 340). Still to check the baby's relationship with the family.
