Does anyone know anything about a Best family living in Peveril St upto 1965  neighbours possibly Moffet
 My grandfather and grandmother Best lived at this house.  I remember visiting them in the early sixties although I was rather young.  My father George was their son.  Unfortunately dad died in 1979.. Reply back to me if you are looking any more info.

The 1943 Street Directory for Peveril Street, courtesy of the Lennon Wylie website, shows:
 
36. Taylor, John, fireman
 38. Best, J., smith's helper
 40. McBride, James, labourer
 42. Henry, James, labourer
 44. Moffett, J., labourer

Full listing for everil Street here:

I wonder if it is the same Best?

  I was born in Peveril  Street in 1937 and lived there until 1949 except a year or so during the war when the family moved to Carnalea. I remember Coal Black Joe, Mrs England and Louie McCormack, at the bottom of the street, just before Louies there was an old man called Granda McKibbin who, when the weather was nice would sit outside his house smoking his pipe, that was until they built a great big air raid shelter outside his house. A few other names come to mind, Harry, Elsie and Edith Mooney and the Gibson family.

hi Ulstermist45
I am researching Englands, Bests, Pollys & Hamiltons. Interested in your post on Granny Englands shop on Peveril Street. The England connection I have is William James England (Great grandfather)who married Ada Sarah Polly. William was originally born in Armagh , but my granny, when born, was brought up near Apsley Street, and later when she herself was married the family lived in Ebor Street. Am just trying to place all these areas together and when I saw your post about Mrs England was wondering if she was one of my Englands. Oh ,my granny was born in 1915 by the way....

Give me a week or so glenys and i'll put up a picture of  Mrs england holding up my father outside her shop.
The photo is probably circa 1939/40.
It might help you.
Also she had a son called Rozzie England who moved in after she passed away in 1968/69 [i vaguely remember being at the funeral, as i was only about 6 or so].

The coal black joe your referring to is i think, Davey Finlay who owned the coal shop just at the bend in the street as you were heading up towards Sheechans pub at the top.
My grandfather used to paper and paint their upstairs rooms every year.
He once told me the neighbors used to ask how dirty it was upstairs cos davey and his wife were always covered in coaldust.
But he told them it was spotless, i can back that up as i was upstairs when i was young and actually seen it myself. ;)
