Public Houses in Brabourne

BRABOURNE is a village five miles east from Ashford, two and a half north from Smeeth Station, partly in the hundred of Wye. The church is a large and handsome building. The living is a vicarage in the gift of the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Rev. James Brothers is the incumbent. The population in 1851 was 816. Here is a Baptist Chapel. Fiddling Street is half a mile S.E.; Broad Street, one S.W.; West Brabourne, one mile and a half west; Waterford, two miles N.W.; Bulltown Corner, one mile and a half N.W.; Brabourne Lees, two miles S.W.; Park House, one mile and a half S.W.

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!
