I am positively the last living relative of W.T.Stead. My late father ( South African ) was the son of his brother-who resided in Red House,Port Elizabeth,South Africa. I have followed his ( W.T.Stead ) history closely for many years,as has my eldest son (Mark Stead ) now living in Paris.The sinking /and history of the "Titanc " has therefore fasinated me for years. Please keep the history flowing. Theo Stead St.Francis Bay 6312 South africa
Hello. You say: "Stead was born in Manse, Embleton, Northumbria" which has two problems. The manse is a building (the minister's house), not a placename, and the county he was born in was Northumberland, not Northumbria the historic kingdom. The extract should read something more like: "Stead was born in the Manse in Embleton, Northumberland". Hope this helps!
