Public Houses in Pembury

Pembury is a village, five miles S.W. from Tunbridge. The church is dedicated to St. Peter, and appears to be of great antiquity; it stands about one mile and a half from the village. The living is a vicarage, in the patronage and incumbency of the
Rev. George Stephen Woodgate, M.A. Here is the Tunbridge Union workhouse; and at the end of the village is a row of neat almshouses for six old persons, the gift of Charles Amherst, Esq., of Bayhall.

POST-OFFICE. - George Edward Neal, Receiver. Letters arrive from Tunbridge.

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!
