Update on the Redmaynes of Stainforth

I've just made some alterations to the post on The Redmayne family of Stainforth, from information received from a reader.  Thank you, Norman!

Joseph Beresford Shields: Stockton lad in Essex

I'm just making a correction today to the post about Joseph Beresford Shields 1879-1917, because I've heard from Carole Mulroney in Leigh-on-Sea that the address of the house in which Joe lived was Southsea Avenue, not Southend Avenue.

Carole will be telling the story of Joe's letters in the local history magazine - if nobody from Leigh-on-Sea comes forward to claim the letters, I'll see if Preston Park Museum would like them.  If anyone has a better idea, please let me know!
