My great-grandparents, Robert Bertram and Mary Ann Green Bertram, came to the U.S. in the mid-19th century from Sheffield. She was just 12 at the time, and her family emigrated in 1854. Robert's brother (I have no name) also came to the U.S. but returned to England. I am hoping to find information about their parents and siblings and would love to contact any descendants.

I can't find any records for a Robert Bertram which match with the information you have given.
As you give the two names as your grt. grandparents, did Robert Bertram marry Mary Ann Green? If so, does their marriage certificate give some information as to their fathers?

Thank you to all who administer and run this great site.

I'm looking for information on when James & Harry Wales born in Hepworth Suffolk, arrived in Sheffield. Their brother John Frost Wales is on the 1871 Census living with his Uncle John Wales (a Game Dealer) and Aunt Mary, his brother George is in the 1881 Census living with them also.

Thank you smile

I am looking for John Wallace and his wife Amelia. He was a stone mason, and had three daughters. They later adopted a baby.

Hi Donald,
There is a member just asking about the very same family. I think he married Amelia Lee in 1837.
If you've registered as a member you will be able to make contact with Jane. Looks like you have a family connection already!

Nice to find such an informative site. I'm looking for part of my husband's family - SMALLEY - in particular Joseph Smalley who came to Sheffield from Lincolnshire around 1840. He was a shoemaker married to Charlotte

bluebell Friday, 23 April 2010 13:48
Hi Margaret,
Joseph & Charlotte are buried in the same grave at the General Cemetery. Also in the grave is daughter Harriet Roddis and 2 sons. Once you register and log in, you will be able to find this information from the 'Data Menu'.

Hi, I'm looking to trace the Carley family from Sheffield. Charles Martin Frederi Carley was born in German c1858 and became a Pork Butcher in Sheffield. His wife was Sophia Stohrer and they married in 1881. Any help much appreciated. Barbara

bluebell Monday, 12 April 2010 13:55
Hi Barbara,
In the 1891 census, the family lived at Grantham and George was a Pork Butcher. In the 1901 census, Sophia (widow) and the children lived at Leicester. Frederick Charles M Carley's death is registered at Leicester in the June quarter of 1900.
The 1911 census requires a subscription/credits to view the complete entry, but from what I can find without, Sophia 67,children Fred 23, Kate 22, Flora 21, Gertrude 17 and Walter 10 are in Sheffield.
By registering on this site and posting on the message forum, I think you would get further help.

Hello Kerrin,
I can't find anythin other than the marriage entry on the IGI.
If you haven't registered on the site, it would be worthwhile as more members will read your request.
What information on their children do you have; births, addresses etc.

kerrin harwood Sunday, 9 May 2010 03:21
Hi Doreen, I posted incorrect email address correct on is please contact me again

bluebell Sunday, 9 May 2010 06:30
Hi Kerrin,

I didn't contact you by email, only a reply via the guest book.If you post on the 'Message Forum', which more members will read,you are much more likely to receive further information or even a family contact.
