Georgina Burnham at the YORKSHIRE GREY, Coggeshall, in 1901, was my great grandmother. She was born Georgina Palmer in Bocking in 1848. She married my great grandfather William Harding, born in Bradwell juxta Coggeshall in 1849 (who had the ES added to the end of his name) in 1869. They had ten children. He died in 1897. She then married Edward Joshua Burnham in 1899. Mary Dyer, visitor at the pub in 1901 was William’s sister and William Dyer her husband. *****

Tracey and his wife Sarah Ann in 1931 (at his daughter Ada's wedding).
Edgar Tracy Pennick was married first to Louise Saunders in 1886. They had a daughter, Eva, born 1887, but she had rheumatic fever and died in 1913/14, unmarried. After Louise died, Edgar Tracey married her sister, Sarah Ann in April 1902 and had 4 children, Edgar Frank Saunders (Frank); Mary Gladys; Ada Emily and Alfred Saunders (Mick - my father). Edgar Tracey went to sea as a young man and also worked at Paxmans in Chelmsford before taking a pub, The Five Bells, at Boreham. At Boreham, he had his own blacksmiths shop and forge and classed himself as an agricultural engineer as well as an Inn Keeper. About 1908 the family moved to Coggeshall where they kept the Yorkshire Grey Pub in Tilkey Road for 33 years. In 1939 Edgar Tracey retired and he, Sarah Ann, Eliza and Mary moved to Berkeley Cottage, further up Tilkey Road."**

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!
