Many of the older houses in Rainham and elsewhere were given names for various blocks of houses. One set of houses in Orchard Street Rainham is known as Reads Terrace and is shown as being built in 1887. This is shortly after Providence Chapel further down Orchard Street was built in 1884

There is still a sign on the Reads Terrace houses showing the name and date of consrtuction
