Melvilles 1858 Directory of Kent.

STAPLE is a small village, eight miles east from Canterbury, two S.E. of Wingham, and four west of Sandwich. The church of St. James is remarkably long and low, with a square tower. The living is a perpetual curacy, united with the rectory of Adisham, in the gift of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and incumbency of the Rev. W. Dickins. There is also a Baptist chapel in the village. The population, in 1851, was 590. Grove Park is a large park and seat. Barnssell is three quarters of a mile east; Ham Hill Court, one mile and a half S.E,; Summerfield, half a mile S.E.; Cricksall, half a mile south; Tweedham, a quarter of a mile S.W.; Pedden, one mile north.

Letters received through Wingham, which is also the nearest Money Order Office.
Cozens, Mr. Samuel

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!
