George Ellis and Emily Ellis (née Emily Rosewarne): Burial Records

Published: January 11, 2017    Last modified: January 17, 2017

...George Ellis 1860-1928 During research of my family names ROSEWARNE and ELLIS, I came across, in some burial records, the name of my gg grandmother Emily ELLIS (née Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944). I had already established her date of birth, marriage and death but it was rewarding to find where she had been laid to rest. The burial record also provided her last known address, that of 36 Finlay Street, Sheffield. The address rang a bell, since I had already seen this address while researching ELLIS baptisms. Though I had details of Emily's important dates I had never been...

George Ellis 1860-Deceased and Emily Ellis (née Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944)

...Chatting with my mother about our family history, I recall her saying details of the ELLIS line of our family are few and far between. With this in mind I searched FreeBMD in order to match George ELLIS 1860-Deceased with a spouse. Eventually in Sheffield I found a likely marriage between one George ELLIS 1860-Deceased and one Emily Ellis (née Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944). The date of September 1882 met my expectations, and furthermore, the name ROSEWARNE seemed somewhat familiar. A few days later my mother confirmed the name ROSEWARNE and supplied some very valuable additional information regarding George ELLIS...

Left: Emily Bellamy (née Emily Ellis) 1883-1978 Right: Marjorie Green (née Marjorie Ellis) 1912-1988 Over the last few weeks I have exchanged emails with two daughters of my great uncle Thomas Leslie BELLAMY 1922-2011, who of course are my 1st cousins 1 time removed. One of his daughters had seen this website and found this article and photograph of Emily BELLAMY (née Emily ELLIS) 1883-1978. Sadly, I was to learn Thomas Leslie BELLAMY 1922-2011 had passed away in November 2011, in his 90th year. Thomas Leslie BELLAMY 1922-2011 was the youngest child of George Albert BELLAMY 1880-Deceased...

George Ellis 1860-Deceased and Emily Rosewarne 1865-1944: Marriage Certificate

...George Ellis 1860-Deceased This is another of the certificates I recently obtained from Sheffield Register Office. The marriage certificate of George ELLIS 1860-Deceased and Emily ELLIS (née Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944) provides a few clues to help further my research: The father of George ELLIS 1860-Deceased is recorded as Mark ELLIS 1831-Deceased. Having carried out little research into George ELLIS 1860-Deceased this should prove very useful. The father of Emily ELLIS (née Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944) is confirmed as Thomas ROSEWARNE 1823-1895. Once again I will post a full transcript of this marriage certificate when time allows. Updates: 2007-08-04 To...

...Emily Bellamy (née Emily Ellis 1883-1978) Another photograph from the family collection, identified by my mother. This photograph has a date stamp on the reverse of "23 Apr 1", exasperatingly the year falls off the edge of the photograph! Did photographic studios purposely do this knowing it would drive future researchers insane! Emily BELLAMY (née Emily ELLIS 1883-1978) was my last surviving maternal great grandparent. She was born on the 23rd of July, 1883 and lived well into her nineties, passing away on the 2nd of October, 1978 at Middlewood Hospital, Sheffield. My records show George Albert BELLAMY...

...Left: Florence Ashforth (née Florence Flowers 1876-1973) Right: Marjorie Green (née Marjorie Ellis 1912-1988) This photograph of Florence ASHFORTH (née Florence FLOWERS 1876-1973) and Aunt Marjorie, Marjorie GREEN (née Marjorie ELLIS 1912-1988) was probably taken in the early 1960s. I'm not sure of the location though it certainly is not 4 Hawksley Road, Sheffield 6, where at this time Florence lived. The photograph may well have been taken at Aunt Marjorie's house on the Wisewood Estate, Sheffield. Updates: 2010-01-14 I made a little time to carry out some research on Marjorie GREEN (née Marjorie ELLIS 1912-1988) (Aunt Marjorie)....

George Ellis 1860-Deceased

Published: February 5, 2007    Last modified: February 2, 2017

...George Ellis 1860-Deceased This photograph of my great grandfather George ELLIS 1860-Deceased must rank as one of the oldest in our family collection. Though I have not spent too much time investigating my ELLIS branch, I'm sure if I find time to visit the Sheffield Register Office I should be able to obtain at least his marriage certificate. George ELLIS 1860-Deceased was born at Sheffield, Yorkshire and married Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944 during September 1882 at Sheffield. According to my mother George was a very wealthy individual (when compared to others in the family). He owned his own factory...

...Annie Elizabeth Ellis Annie Elizabeth ELLIS was born in 1911 at Sheffield, Yorkshire, England. Our family always referred to her as Aunt Annie. I remember her as a happy, jovial person, often visiting my grandmother Emily ASHFORTH (née Emily BELLAMY) 1903-1992 and great grandmother Florence ASHFORTH (née Florence FLOWERS) 1876-1973. Annie E ELLIS married Hector William R. Withall at Sheffield in 1923. My mother recalls Vic WITHALL was employed in newspaper production and had relocated to Sheffield from the south of England to work with one of the local newspaper companies. According to mother Uncle Vic (the family...

...During the early part of 2016 I received an email from a descendant of Martha Patricia SAMBROOK (née Martha Patricia ELLIS 1894-Deceased). The lady (whom for privacy I will refer to as MM) is the gg grandaughter of Martha Patricia SAMBROOK (née Martha Patricia ELLIS 1894-Deceased) and Arthur SAMBROOK -Deceased. Martha Patricia ELLIS was my great grand aunt, a younger sister of my great grandmother Emily ELLIS 1883-1978, their parents being George ELLIS 1860-Deceased and Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944. MM informed me of her grandmother's married name of CHINN. Since CHINN is a relatively easy name to search for, I...
