SOUTHBOROUGH is a village and parish, three miles south from the town of Tunbridge. The population in 1851 was l,327. The church is a neat and commodious building. The living is a perpetual curacy; the Rev. Stephen Langston, M.A., is the incumbent. Here is also a neat Wesleyan chapel.

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!
