Mrs Bridget Hickey the landlady of the Wade Arms was a witness at my great grand mother Margaret Clancy`s marriage to her second husband George Charlston on the 18th November 1883 at St Marys and St Josephs church Poplar. Margaret; and her first husband Daniel Clancy lived prior to his death in 1881 in Grove Street, which became Bygrove Street. Bridget Hickey herself was given a mention in the Stepney Docks Web site, in relation to the Stepney Dock Strike of 1889, cooking food for the leaders of the strike, ,despite a fairly large family of her own to feed, on perhaps as a widow, a very limited amount of money. I am proud as a retired person these days ,having discovered Bridget during my searching for my own family ancestors, was a good friend of my great grandmother. ***

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!
