Sussex pub history index
This information is for Brighton, it includes Trade Directory listings from 1832 onwards. In starting a new area of research, it is always good to have a background of the area, I choose to list as much information as possible over a period of years. In researching Sussex, the town of Brighton appeared a good starting point, and hence the listings.
