Joseph Leacock Licorish Stoute was the fifth child of Benjamin Edward Stoute and his wife Sarah Ann Gilkes. He was born 26 January 1855 at Pie Corner, St.Lucy, Barbados and christened on 11 April 1858 at St.Clements
Church,St.Lucy. He must have left Barbados sometime in the middle 1870's to go to Demerara to work.He returned to Barbados and married Florence Jane Elizabeth Wood on 19 July 1887. She was the daughter of Thomas Lear Wood and his wife Ann Marshall. Florence was born on 26 February 1858 at Lower Birney, St.Michael,Barbados and was christened on 31 July 1858 at the Cathedral,Bridgetown,Barbados. Joseph was the younger brother of my great grandfather Benjamin Edward Stoute Jnr who was born in 1853 and died in 1926 in Philadelphia USA. I have just finished over twenty five years of research on the Stoute family and have put it in book form. I have CD's of this book complete with biographies and photographs of Stoutes in Barbados, USA,Canada,England and Australia and I am very willing to share this with you if you will share with me the descendants of Joseph and Florence and their photographs.
