Stood in the market place where Mr, J. C. Hinks' shop now stands. With the exception of the shop windows it looks very much as when built. Benjamin Lewys, or as the token issued in 1667 calls him 'Ben Lewes,' was living there when the token was made. There were three of the same name living in the parish at that time. Ben died in 1679. He belonged to a family of some position, himself being churchwarden in 1667.  - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.

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!
