My great grandfather, on my motherís side, Mitchell Roberts, was licensee of the Red Lion, Shooters Hill and in the 1901 census, the 'Guy, Earl of Warwick, Welling'. According to your site, in 1874, the licensee of the Earl of Warwick, Woolwich was Jane Richardson. I think she was nee Jane Linnington, aunt of Mitchell Robertís wife, Mary Ann Linnington. **

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!
