From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Addey (1550-16 April 1606) was master shipwright at HM Dockyard Deptford in south-east London.

Addey was buried in St Nicholas Church in Deptford and there are plaques to him on the exterior north wall.

He left £200 to the poor of Deptford which was invested in land on Church Street and provided an income to maintain schools (his will also mentioned Londons' Shipwrights Hall). The Addey School was built here in 1821 and enlarged in 1862. It amalgamated with Dean Stanhope's School to form Addey and Stanhope School, and moved to New Cross Road in 1899.
