THE ORIGINS OF SILVERWOOD MINERS

 

The origins below are linked to pages containing the names of Miners who worked or came from other Mines, Army,  non mining related work origins and places, and also other Countries.

The photo on the left I believe is the Miner who came from Australia in the 1920's, note the Aussie slouch Hat worn by Australian troops in World War 1. The photo is from an original of the Dalton Jazz band who formed to raise money to buy a wheelchair for a local man who had no legs.

 

 

George Thomas and Elizabeth Ellen Mason. Photo courtesy Sarah Holden

 On the left is a photo of George Thomas Mason born in 1878 and his wife Margaret Ellen Price also born in 1878 They were both born in Wednesbury - Staffordshire and in 1904 moved to 6 Norwood Street, Dalton Brook,  which makes them amongst the first of the many who came into the area.

 

 

 

Please note that some street names occurred in different localities, as in Doncaster Road which could be in Rotherham, Dalton, Thrybergh, or Hooton Roberts.

School Street can be Thrybergh or Eastwood Rotherham.

Where locality is known it will be recorded. If you know of the locality of a street on the lists that have no locality named please contact me so the list can be completed. Some Street Locations are listed here [ This site ]
