AdminHistoryFrederick William Maddocks was born in Stepney in 1860 into a well-known family from Ratcliff. He was educated at the Coopers' Company School, as was his brother Sydney Maddocks (1870-1953), a well-known historian of east London. Frederick also had an interest in local history, particularly Ratcliff, where he served as a rate collector for the Hamlet. He also worked as an accountant for the Limehouse District Board of Works, and from 1900 to 1925 the Metropolitan Borough of Stepney. Maddocks also served as a governor and later vice-chair of the Stepney and Bow Foundation. Frederick William Maddocks died in Wanstead in 1934.
