Note on Wife: Lillian Rose STEVENS

box of letters that my Grandma Easto (Lillian Rose Stevens) saved.

She's sent me a number of them, hoping that maybe they'd help figure out who lived in the house where the documents for her grandfather, Albert Charles Stevens, were found.

I've been going through the letters trying to piece together who they are from and where the people are writing from. Anyway, I could really use some help. The handwriting is hard to read especially when I'm totally unfamiliar with place names. I've tried to use Google Maps but sometimes I'm guessing at the first letter of the place name and if I do get the street, I'm so disappointed as I can't see any numbers on the buildings. As I read the writing, what I have is:

 

A letter written by Ida Easto who I think married an Easto - I don't know what her maiden name would be. The return address is 5 Court 1 House Oak St., Heeley, Sheffield 8, Yorkshire, England - would this be a multi-residential building with maybe the apartment being "5 Court" and the house number is 1 on Oak St? The format for writing addresses is different than here.

From 21 Howarth Rd., Sheffield 9, I have a 1966 letter to Aunt Rose and Uncle Herbert. It's written by Dolly who refers to her wedding anniversary with Arnold. It sounds like she has a son Michael and there's a reference to Carol, Frank and the children. It's not written on an blue airmail letter so there's no proper return address to give me a last name. Do any of these individuals sound familiar? Maybe from your side as they are writing to Aunt and Uncle?

I've made quite a discovery with the next letter. It's from Lizzie, my grandfather Herbert Easto's sister. I could never find anything out about her. From the letter, it seems that she married Charlie Davy! She refers to Ida, Clara, and Ivy and writes from 505 Herries Road and I take it that Sherecliffe is a neighbourhood in Sheffield? Can you place any of the names?

The next one I can't read enough to write it out so it's scanned and attached. It's Ivy, mentioned above in a letter from Lizzie, writing. I read the last name as Lyach - do you? She's married to John and is writing to Aunt Rose and Uncle Herbert - same as Dolly on Howarth Rd. She says that she had Philip for the weekend, and refers to Michael and Carol. Appreciate help with the writing on this one!

Aunt Enid says that she's got about 50 more letters and lots of old pictures. I think it will be best if I get out to see her as soon as possible :-) Maybe there will be one from the mystery address where the documents were found. Whatever I find, I'll share!

Thank you for looking at my questions so far.

Regards

Marion
