Melvilles 1858 Directory of Kent.

THE CRAYS are four respectable villages and parishes, contiguous to each other, in the lathe of Sutton-at-Hone, Ruxley hundred, and Bromley union, West Kent. The most important of the four villages is St. Mary Cray, with a population, in 1851, of 1,400. Next is Foot's Cray, which was formerly called Fore's Cray. It lies on the direct road from London to Maidstone, and is five miles from Bromley; the population of which, in 1851, was 369, and of North Cray, 570, and St. Paul's Cray, 554. Each of
these villages has its parish church; they are in the diocese of Canterbury.

If you would like to contribute the amazing new project to map London over the last hundred years and more, please continue to read. What is needed is mainly details of when a London street was renamed, bombed, cleared, or tidied. Pictures are the best way of expressing anything, and a picture tells a thousand words. Also needed is those thousand words, or even fity words. Anything will be brilliant. Please help out before the London skyline is transformed for ever. What is needed, just an email to the Email the London team. We can do the rest; and you also get your name on the site, if this is OK.
