Public Houses in Horton Kirby & South Darenth

HORTON KIRBY is a parish and village, four miles from Dartford, and 10 from Sevenoaks. The population in 1851 was 747. The church is a very ancient edifice. The living is a vicarage, in the patronage of the family of the present vicar, who is the Rev. George Rashleigh, M.A. South Darenth is partly in this parish.

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!
