    UK Pub history research and London historical street directory

    Search the historical London street directory, and London pub history site including early street addresses in London through the Victorian pub history of London. This search engine is not brilliant, try address searches in the main google search to get better results. Searches on people names do appear to work, I think. Let me know!

    Melvilles 1858 Directory of Kent.

    ORPINGTON is a parish and village in the lathe of Sutton-at-Hone, six miles S.E. from Bromley, and eight from Dartford. The population in 1851 was 1,203. The church, dedicated to All Saints, is of rather a mean appearance, with a low embattled tower. The living comprises a sinecure rectory and a discharged vicarage, with the perpetual curacy of St. Mary Cray annexed, in the patronage of the see of Canterbury.

    POST-OFFICE. - Elizabeth Joyner, Receiver, Letters arrive from Bromley. The nearest Money Order Office is at hiselhurst.
