Myers Family History
The Myers family and Sheffield (1850 - 1900)

The Myers family moved to Sheffield from Hull in about 1850. They lived at various addresses in the lower Ecclesall Road / Broomhall area. Most of the area has been extensively redeveloped. Several of the streets still exist but very few Victorian buildings now remain. These photos were taken at the beginning of April 2007.

March 2007 - old street sign for Egerton Lane

This street sign was found in Egerton Lane, a street adjacent to Egerton Street where Thomas and Mary Myers lived at number 60 in 1861.

The following three photos were taken in Milton Street which runs parallel to Egerton Street. This courtyard style of house is probably similar to the house in nearby Victoria Street in which Edward Myers died in 1898

Victoria Street still exists. The Jessop Hospital building at the top end of it was about to be demolished.

The Victorian Baths building (built in 1896) is still there but has been converted to a health spa.

but "2 in Court 18", which is the address given on Edward Myers' death certificate, would have been a house of the type shown above.
