Not Brentford

1826 Trade Directory Index

Carole kindly sent me the scanned images from Pigot’s directory of Middlesex and the Towns and Villages within 12 miles of London 1826.

The trade directory listed the Nobility, Gentry & Clergy first then the traders, under headings such as Academies (ie schools), Boot & Shoe Makers etc. At the end are listed all the tradespeople who did not fit under one of the other headings.

I have taken all the entries and put them into surname order. The information provided is

  • Surname
  • Forename
  • Title
  • Address: OB = Old Brentford, the eastern part; NB = New Brentford, the western part; I think an address of OB or NB indicates the High Street
  • Trade: NGC = Nobility, Gentry & Clergy
  • Other Information: includes the name of public houses & inns and any other snippets from the original entry

Surnames beginning: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R , S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z

In 2013 Janet McNamara provided copies from the same directory but for 1823-4. At some point I will prepare a similar index for this earlier directory, in the meantime please get in touch if you would like a look-up.
