Marquis of Salisbury, Freeling street, James Young to Alfred Robert Redcup

The wonderfully named Alphonso Sigismund Redrup died at the Shakespeare Head in 1874, aged 33. He was a licensed victualler in the 1871 census, living at 10 Upper Freeling Street, Islington (the Marquis of Salisbury). He died of Brights Disease. ***

His brother John Jesse Redrup and sister Emma Sarah Redrup were also at the Shakespeares Head at the time of Alphonso’s death (according to probate and death certificate) but in 1871 they were at the Constitution Tavern in the Kings Road, John Jesse being a licensed victualler. ***

John Jesse Redrup, having spent many years as a farmer in rural Buckinghamshire, died in 1915 as the publican of the Queens Head, Sawston, Cambridgeshire. You have his wife Evangeline Patty Redrup noted there from the 1916 Kellys directory. John Jesse was listed in the 1911 census in Sawston as licensed victualler but perhaps wasn’t living at the pub. The address was just High Street.  ***

You have another brother already noted at the Marquis of Salisbury, Freeling Street, Islington, in 1866 and 1869 (Albert Robert Redrup). He also died young, only 33, in 1869. Alphonso took over after his brother’s death, as his address in 1871 is 10 Upper Freeling Street, as noted above. ***
