WEST WICKHAM is a village and an extensive parish, pleasantly situated on the borders of Surrey, three miles and a half S.W. from Bromley, and four south from Croydon. The population in 1851 was 732. The church of St. John the Baptist is an ancient building, with a square embattled tower, and is in good repair. The living is a rectory, in the diocese of Canterbury, and patronage of Sir Charles Francis Farnaby, Bart., who is the lord of the manor. The Eev. Thomas Austin, M.A., is the incumbent.

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!
