John Caswell is my great, great, great, grandfather. I thought you might like to add a former address, being at Butt Lane, which later became Deptford High Street. *

John Caswell was married at St Paul’s Deptford in 1787. The registration of his children’s baptisms, at St Paul’s Deptford from 1788 to 1804, state that he was a victualler of Butt Lane, Deptford. *

In 1798, John Caswell was assessed for Land Tax as an occupier of a property owned by James Frank at Butt Lane West side. (Source: The National Archives; Kew, Richmond; Surrey, Land Tax Redemption Office: Quotas and Assessments, IR23; Piece: 37, Volume : 3. Accessed through ancestry.com. UK, Land Tax Redemption, 1798.). *

In Holden's Triennial Directory, 1805, 1806, 1807, John Caswell is listed at the Red Lion and Wheatsheaf, Butt Lane, Deptford. *

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!
