Ever interested by the idea of tracing our family history, we here at Newsstand thought that we’d have a go at tracing ours using Your Family Tree as a starting point. The results below make for some fascinating reading.
John Q. Newsstand (1863-1935): early 20th century pioneer of the newspaper and magazine trade, John Newsstand employed scores of workers to wander round the streets, shouting tantalising snippets of the latest news and charging the finest gents and ladies of London a small fee to have copies of their favourite publications hand-delivered to their door. A great philanthropist, he was renowned for paying his workers well above their costs of living.
Henry H. Newsstand: (1820-1875): John’s father, Henry started the family business by selling copies of the Gentleman’s Magazine from a mobile cart pulled by a fellow named Balderick.
Eleanor D’Newsstand (1787- 1845): Mother of Henry, a fierce matriarch, heavily involved in spreading the printed word to the masses. Sadly lost the family fortune in an unfortunate highway robbery when on the way to the bank to finally put it in safe hands.
Francois D’Newsstand Plantagenet (1740-1803): Came over to England to escape the French Revolution, distantly related to the royalty of France and thus the royal houses of all Europe. Was hounded out of Paris after it was discovered he was selling small pamphlets to both royalists and revolutionaries in the name of good business. NB
