ASHENDON is a parish and small village, situate 7 1/2 miles W. from
Aylesbury, in the three hundreds of Ashendon, and union of Aylesbury. The
church, dedicated to St. Mary, is an ancient structure, of the early English
and Perpendicular orders, comprising chancel, nave, south aisle, and a tower
containing three bells. In the interior is a tomb, covered with foliage, on
which is a figure of one of the Knights
Templars; it is supposed to commemorate Sir John Bugden, of Pollicott. The
living, value £70 per annum, is a perpetual curacy, including the curacy of
Dorton, in the deanery of Waddesdon, and incumbency of the Rev. Thomas
Woodward Gardner; the Rev. Wm. Prichard is resident curate. It is supposed
that a battle between Edmund and Canute was fought here, about 1016; but a
doubt exists whether this happened at this place or at Ashdown in Kent. The
parish comprises 1790 acres; population in 1861, 325.

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London
street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus
images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also
carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with
1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
