According to the 1851 census the landlord  of the Steel Yard, Upper Thames Street, was Robert Burley, my great great grandmother Sarah Burley's brother. Subsequently, one of the staff members, John Oakes, (my great great grandfather) married Sarah and became landlord. He later became landlord of the Hayfield, by 1869 ***

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!
