London historical street directory and pub history

This is now an updated and complete, historical London street directory for 1832 and 1842 and more

Feathers, 34 Great Chapel Street, St Margaret, Westminster

Westminster St Margaret index

The address in 1856 and earlier is at 6 Great Chapel Street. In existence since at least 1745, the pub is marked on the 1869 OS map in its present position (east side, between Dacre Street and Tothill Street). The street was called Broadway in 1795 (Horwood’s map) and reverted to Broadway some time between 1908 and 1935, but some of the houses at the northern end used Broadway as part of their address throughout the 19th Century, and the License transfer references from The Era simply say “Broadway”. The numbering scheme in 1851 was especially chaotic, with 1 to 17 going south on the west side, 1 to 12 going north on the east side up to Dacre Street, then descending again from 9 back to 1 between Dacre Street and Tothill Street. *

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!
