Bro S H Reid s – Stephen H Reid


Stephen H. Reid, son of John Reid

 

Stephen Henry Reid, the son of John and Charlotte Reid, nee Green was the seventh of fourteen children. He married Alice May Richards on 17/01/1899 and they had two sons, Oswald Hector and Leslie George Reid.  Alice May Richards, who was only sixteen when she married, was the daughter of William George (George)  Richards and Charlotte (Rhoda) Leggett.

My Grandfather Stephen Reid, a tall redhaired man, was a Stonemason and like many of his Reid relatives a member of a Masonic Lodge. A Lodge member told me that the “s” after Stephen’s name  stood for Steward. After their marriage Stephen and Alice Reid lived in Oakville, Eaton,and Mabel Sts., Willoughby before settling at Cardigan Rd., East Roseville.
