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 1880-Deceased, a bachelor, age 21 and a 'File Cutter' by profession, residing at Quality Road, Sheffield, Yorkshire, married Emily ELLIS 1883-1978, on the 6th of October, 1901. The marriage ceremony was conducted by H A Goodwin after the reading of Banns at the Church of Saint John the Baptist, Owlerton, Sheffield.
George's father is recorded as Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased and his father's profession that of 'File Cutter'. The Witnesses were Frank ELLIS and Mabel Louise ELLIS.
Frank ELLIS is most likely the uncle of Emily BELLAMY (née Emily ELLIS 1883-1978), since I have found a marriage record for a Frank ELLIS and a Mabel Louise HUMPHRIES in 1899.
On the same day that Frank ELLIS and Mabel Louise HUMPHRIES were married, I have found a record of marriage between one John Arthur BELLAMY and one Elizabeth SHELDON. Neither of these individuals feature in my GEDCOM so this is probably worth researching at a later date.
Read about the former Middlewood Hospital and the redevelopment of the site it occupied.
