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 able to establish when her husband (my gg grandfather) George ELLIS had passed away. I had his date of birth but the date of his passing had always eluded me. Though Ellis is a very common surname, as is the forename George, having the address made it a relatively easy task to now find the correct George ELLIS's burial record: George was buried on March 5, 1928 and Emily on February 25, 1944.

In the latter years of their lives, fortunately, George and Emily had remained in the same house at 36 Finlay Street, a large house I remember as a child visiting: complete with stables, a horse and a carriage, and according to my mother, two staircases.

Eventually the house would be demolished to make way for a road widening scheme; some call it progress.

The burial records show Emily and George were buried at Crookes Cemetery, Sheffield. So come some fine spring weather I will take a trip to Crookes and armed with the grave number and a plan of the cemetery, hope to locate and photograph the headstone. Assuming there is one and it hasn't been laid horizontal due to health and safety concerns.

John William Chinn and Elizabeth Chinn (née Elizabeth Roberts)

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 great 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 decided to spend a couple of hours researching the name CHINN in and around Sheffield: this returned quite a few ancestors of MM's grandfather.

Searching publicly accessible databases I found a marriage for a John William CHINN 1902-1981 and one Elizabeth ROBERTS who died at Sheffield in 1973. I was able to find 9 children from this marriage though, sadly, several died at quite an early age.

Though as yet I cannot corroborate my findings, I am grateful for the snippets of information people send me.

Most of the people I found are probably still living so I have withheld names and relationships except for known deaths.

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). Marjorie ELLIS was the youngest daughter of George ELLIS 1860-Deceased and Emily Ellis (née Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944), born September 1912 at Sheffield, Yorkshire, England. Marjorie GREEN (née Marjorie ELLIS 1912-1988) married (Jim) James GREEN d.1988 at Sheffield, March 1937.

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.

I am the great grandaughter of Martha Ellis. So this would make Mr George Ellis my great great grandfather. If you could let me know of any other details i would be delighted as I've just started on this long journey!

Sheffield Register Office: Certificates

Published: April 3, 2007    Last modified: February 4, 2017

I have posted off an order for the following certificates to Sheffield Register Office:

Birth Certificate: Alice TURNER 1862-Deceased
Marriage Certificate: George FLOWERS 1839-1891 and Harriet FLOWERS (née Harriet LAW 1836-1903)
Marriage Certificate: George ELLIS 1860-Deceased and Emily ELLIS (née Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944)

Hopefully this will provide the information I need to extend my research of these lines.

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 probably grinding files, and a great deal of residential rental property in Sheffield and Rotherham. My mother recalls going out and about with him to collect rent from his tenants.

Obtaining a marriage certificate for this couple together with their birth certificates needs to be added to my 'Tasks'. Hopefully I can then establish their parents names and hopefully some indication as to where in Sheffield their respective families resided.

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 1860-Deceased and Emily Ellis (née Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944). More searching revealed the surname ROSEWARNE to be indigenous to the Redruth and Penzance areas of Cornwall. This makes searching the Sheffield area somewhat easier.
