I am doing some work on my family tree and I have a birth certificate for my great great grandmother showing she was born in a pub. Jan 12th 1856 in the 'King Henry 8th, King Henry Street, Kingsland, Islington". Her name was Martha and her father William Jordan's occupation is 'Licensed Victualler' on the certificate. ***

In the 1856 Trade Directory, there is a Wm Jordan listed as a beer retailer & grocer in Back Road, Kingsland. This matches with an entry for a William Jordan, aged 59 in the 1861 census at 1 John Street, which intersects with Back Road.

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!
