My great grandfather George Shinn lived at 5 Boddys Bridge when he married on 25 th December 1904. I believe he was a Covent Garden porter but he also ran illegal betting so it could have been him that someone above saw. His money was apparently hidden under the floorboards. He was one of the first people to own a car in that area and they also bought a bungalow in Canvey island . He moved into Jane Street on marriage to Polly Ackerman . Jane street also doesn’t exist anymore.
