Mrs Bridget Hickey the landlady of the Wade Arms was a witness at my great grand mother Margaret Clancy`s marriage to her second husband George Charlston on the 18th November 1883 at St Marys and St Josephs church Poplar. Margaret; and her first husband Daniel Clancy lived prior to his death in 1881 in Grove Street, which became Bygrove Street. Bridget Hickey herself was given a mention in the Stepney Docks Web site, in relation to the Stepney Dock Strike of 1889, cooking food for the leaders of the strike, ,despite a fairly large family of her own to feed, on perhaps as a widow, a very limited amount of money. I am proud as a retired person these days ,having discovered Bridget during my searching for my own family ancestors, was a good friend of my great grandmother. ***
