In researching my "Barton" family; I have found my great grandfather, Richard Fisher Barton,  at the Royal Standard, 4 James Place, Tanners Hill in 1861; and a William Barton whom I think was a great great uncle at the Royal Standard, Tanners Hill pub in 1858. I have also learned that Richard Fisher Barton died at the "Walmer Castle" Lewisham, and also lived at the "Crown and Sceptre", Deptford. *

I also found information on "The Bowyer Arms" Clapham, where my grandfather, John Albert Barton, was publican and my father and his seven brothers and sisters were born. *

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!
