The Boars Head in Braintree Essex (with an orchard in occupation of Thomas Bruty) was re-leased on 29th Sept 1842 by Francis de L'Horme de L'Ile Povey . He had inherited the lease from his first wife (deceased 1st June 1840) Mary Ann Povey nee Hattersley. In the 1871 census Francis is resident at the pub and describes himself as publican. However this was a sideline as his real occupation was Undertaker in Westminster, London. *+

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!
