Hildenborugh public houses

HILDENBOROUGH is a pleasant village, two miles N.W. of Tunbridge town. The church, dedicated to St. John, is a neat edifice. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the Vicar of Tunbridge, and incumbency of the Rev. Edward Vinall, M.A. Here is a place of worship for Wesleyans.

POST-OFFICE. - Mrs. Mary Ann Luck, Receiver. Letters are received through
Tunbridge, which is also the nearest Money Order Office.

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!
