Elizabeth Jermy from Norfolk, met and married Richard Aldous and by 1874 the pair were settled in the Volunteer in Barking. When Richard died, as the result of falling from scaffolding at the pub - apparently taking ale up to workmen on the site - Elizabeth remarried, to William Nichols, 20 years her junior and little older than her own children. **
Mary Ann Jermy, Elizabeths niece, can be found at the Duke of York whilst her sister Harriet Jermy can be found at the Coopers Arms, **
Elizabeths two sisters can be found in the 1881 census, i.e. Hannah Maria Jermy is a servant at 260 Roman Road, Bow; and Eliza Jermy is housekeeper to Henry Smith at 413 Old Ford Road, Bow - later the White Hart. **
Richard Aldous was a Butcher in the 1871 census, in Barking.

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!
