My grandfather, Edward Kempton was granted a license for the Lord Nelson, Bishopsgate in March 1853 until about 1855. He was previously at the Old Commodore (aka Red Lion), High street, Poplar between 1850 and 1852, and later at the Ship, Shoreditch High street between 1859 and 1862, and lastly at the Kings Arms, Brook street, Ratcliff, apparently for two periods in the 1860's before his death in 1866. *

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!
