WATERINGBURY is a large village, five miles and a half west of Maidatone, in the lathe of Aylesford, Twyford hundred, and Malling union; and has a station on the Maidstone branch of railway. The church is a handsome gothic building. The living is a vicarage, in the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Rochester, and incumbency of the Rev. Henry Stevens, M.A. The population in 1851 was 1,310. Bow Bridge is on the Medway. Wateringbury Cross adjoins the village. Lillyhoo had, in 1851, 43 inhabitants.

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!
