My 2 great grandfather was John Bent, born in Billesdon in 1816. His elder brother, William Bent, born in 1812, moved to London where his first wife died in 1850. With 2 young children he swiftly married again to Elizabeth Smith at the end of 1850. He was first a coachman but then a licensed victualler for many years. ***

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!
