Public houses in Queenborough

Queenborough is two miles south from Sheerness, on the river Swale. The population in 1851 was 772. It consists of one main street, and is chiefly supported by the oyster fishery. The church is an ancient edifice, consisting of nave, chancel, and tower. Here is a national school for boys and girls.

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!
