I have found that my 2nd great grandfather, Samuel Stockdale was a publican in the 1870s 80s and 90s, as beer retailer, and beer house keeper. The 1871 records show him at the British Volunteer (Victoria Dock Road), then at Greengate street (1881 census) and also at the Park Tavern (Tottenham), maybe in 1874. ***

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!
