Elizabeth Harold, John Danvers Harold, Albert Harold - Sheffield

Does anyone have any information on this family, at 38 Allen St., Sheffield in the 1881 census (JD erroneously shown as John Danvers).

Elizabeth was a widow by 1881; John D was b. 1860; Albert was born in 1862.

John Danvers Harold married Clara Jane Laycock in 1885 in Sheffield. He moved to London in the late 1880s. He was the uncle of Dan Leno aka George Galvin, aka George Grant, although both were born at the end of 1860, four weeks apart. I am trying to establish by what relation he was the uncle. Under his stage-name, Johnny Danvers, he worked with Dan Leno from a young age, and outlived him (Leno died in 1904).

Does anyone have a link?
