Lists extracted from three early nineteenth century directories, ie. Pigot (1828-9), Glover (1827) and Pigot (1835), transcribed by Marjorie Ward
Pigot's extracts of 1828-9 was originally believed to have been from the directory of 1821-22 but it is now known this was incorrect. This was a mistake in the identity of the source, not made by the transcriber.
