      The will of John Stock's son Edward in 1852 particularizes this little East End empire in nearly a score of locations in Poplar, mainly north of the High Street, as well as other properties in Limehouse and at Plaistow and East Ham. (ref. 59) Apart from the sites abutting on the High Street, they were mainly just one or two houses. They ranged down from houses in the High Street and Mountague Place to a few in Woolmore Street and a row of arches under the Blackwall Railway. Only a short time before his death in 1852 Edward began the redevelopment of the High Street sites, carried on thereafter by his son Edward Wood Stock, a solicitor, of Plaistow and Lincoln's Inn Fields. This was coincidental with the departure of the Stocks from their residences in the street, and on the south side some of the property at least was made available for development by freehold sales. The level of development thus varied from poor, when developed under leases from one of Edward Wood Stock's purchasers, to moderate, when Stock granted leases in Woodstock Terrace, where his architect brother Henry was involved.

      Stock Page Stock was founded in 1825 by a Mr George Allen, as Architect and Surveyor with offices in Tooley Street, Southwark. London. When George Allen died in 1847, his business was carried on by his pupil Henry Stock, who had been in Allen's office from 1840 until 1846. Stock entered into partnership with William Snooke and set up at 69 Tooley Street, which was Allen's old office.
      Henry Stock's friend, Edward I'Anson, president of the RIBA, described him as "an able designer and one of the most honourable men of business with whom I am acquainted". In addition to his post as parish surveyor to St. Olave's, Bermondsey, Stock was appointed county surveyor for Essex in 1857 and surveyor to the Haberdashers' Company in 1882. These public offices brought him a substantial amount of work. In 1851 he designed new buildings in the Tudor style for St Olave's Grammar School. For the Haberdashers' Company he designed Aske's Hatcham Girls School and also St. Catherine's church and vicarage at Hatcham. But the main work of his partnership was industrial and commercial buildings.

      Henry Stock's son, Henry William Stock, joined the firm in 1881 and designed Upper Thames Street and the Hamberg/American Line Building in Cockspur Street, off Trafalgar Square. Henry Stock junior designed Fairlawn Mansions, of New Cross Road, which was built for the Haberdashers' Company in the 1880's for the deserving poor of London, and is still managed by Stock Page Stock today.
