JOSEPH SERMIN

12-14, Watson's Walk, later, 8, Sharrow Lane, Sheffield


A LIVELY MORNING SCENE

An exciting burglar hunt occurred at Sheffield this morning. An alarm was given that a jeweller 's premises, owned by J. Sermin, in Watson-walk, were in the possession of a gang of burglars. Two who were in the street watching effected an escape. The police after making a cordon about the place were a couple of hours searching. They captured one man concealed between the slates of the roof and the ceiling of the top storey. Confident that another marauder was concealed the fire brigade's services were requisitioned, the escape being brought to the scene. After a full hour it was concluded that the bird had flown. At about the same time another burglar was captured in another part of the city.


Source: Evening Express and Evening Mail - 8th August 1905


Joseph Sermin was born in 1846 in Neustadt, Grand Duchy of Baden, Germany, he married his wife, Maria Tritschler, who was also German, in 1880. In 1887 Joseph Sernin acquired the firm of Winterhalder & Quenett, who were initially established in 1814. The business had passed between several German families. Lawrence Shwerer was recorded at the address as a ‘German Watch Maker’ in 1822 and 1833. John Tritschler in 1852, John Brugger and Co. in 1862 and Winterhalder & Quenett by 1884.

Joseph Sermin died in 1914 and the business was succeeded by his sons, Albert (b.1883), Joseph jnr. (b.1887) and Victor (b.1897), and later styled J. Sermin & Sons.

The Watson's Walk premises were destroyed in the Sheffield Blitz on the 12th December 1940.
