Not Brentford

Brentford Entries from Holden’s 1811 Trade Directory

The following list of entries has been compiled from S&N Genealogy Supplies’ CD ’Holden’s Annual Directory, 1811’.

The directory included entries for many UK towns (but no specific section for Brentford). However I found there are some Brentford entries listed in the London directory.

The directory is in PDF format and can be searched for text. Searches rely on the software interpreting the old typescript successfully, so to obtain the list below various searches such as ’Brentford’, ’w Brentf’ and ’d Brentf’ were used. I may still have missed a few entries.

A tip for anyone searching a PDF document for an ancestor: it is worth searching for ’Newman John’ and ’John Newman’ as names may appear in either format. If your ancestor has a long name and you find no matches, try searching for part of the name: eg ’utterw’ instead of ’Butterworth’.
