William CHAMBERLAINE found in the 1841 directory is my 3rd great
grandfather. I have a baptism record dated December 1827 where he is listed
as victualler at the time of his son's birth on "Duke Street". The family is
also there in 1832 for the birth of another son, however they aren't there
in 1826 for the birth of their daughter. *

My great grandfather, Isaac Matthews, appears in your site as a beer seller, at 100 East Street, Lambeth, in 1881. On his son Frederick's marriage certificate, in May 1897, he is described as a "Licensed Victualler", and Frederick's address is given as "The Star, Morris Street, E1", which suggests that Isaac was the licensee at that time. ***

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!
