ADDITIONAL INFORMATION West Heys is a family home steeped in history. The house plot was bought by Leonard Johnson Clegg in 1898 who was the younger of the three Clegg brothers - William Edwin & John charles. The Cleggs were a famous sheffield family. Their father was William Johnson Clegg who was the first official receiver of Sheffield and was elected Lord Mayor of Sheffield on several occasions. It was William Johnson laid the inaugural stone to the Sheffield Town Hall in 1891 which is still there to this day.

The stained glass window that sits prominently on the staircase is thought to depict the Mayoral Crest. William Edwin Clegg, (Leonards brother) was Lord Mayor in 1898 and the crest features the lion rampant which is the Duke of Norfolk crest who bestowed the title Lord Mayor to the city in 1897. It is thought that the window was designed by the Clegg family in homage to their recent Lord Mayorship.

William Edwin and John Charles became leading lights in English and Sheffield football, representing England and chairing the FA as well as both Sheffield United & Sheffield Wednesday. All were lawyers and became the law firm Clegg & Sons which later merged as Wake Smith.

The house was sold after Leonard Johnsons death in 1939 to Lionel Stephen Edward Farriss (he would become Lord Mayor of Sheffield). Tenure: Freehold
