My GGF x 3 John Thomas Langridge held the licence for the White Lion @ 195 High Street Chatham (the number has since changed) in 1866 and 1867. John then took over the licence of the Railway Tavern in Northfleet from 1867 until 1871 when he filed for Bankruptcy. John then took over the licence for the Hen and Chickens from 1872 - 1891. *

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!
