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.

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!
