CommentsPaid for by Miss Jeffcock of Worksop 160.0.0 also a fountain erected by same lady cost 400.0.0. The Jeffcocks were a large and prominent local family whose members have been recorded in the area since 1351. The most notable member of the family was William Jeffcock, who was born in Handsworth in 1800 and, in 1843, became the very first Mayor of Sheffield. This special trough/fountain is the same design as a structure in Cleobury-Mortimer.
