One of the old Canvey Characters
He lived at Sea-Brink, Canvey Point which I understand was right up against the seawall and he had a gangplank across to the wall.
Around 1930 he wrote to Mr Lawrence asking for ‘a price for 4 plots of land to the west of his (next to Dr James’)’.
He also wanted ‘an idea of price of a couple of acres of saltings outside the wall at the bottom of my garden?’ He wanted to put in a fish pond.
If you can tell us more or if you know of any photos of him please make a comment below.
