Trades Directories

This colour indicates more information or an external link.

Trade directories first appeared towards the end of the 18th century and were published by a number of companies such as John's, Pigot's and the one which has survived to the present day, Kelly's.  They give a description of each location and the prominent citizens, farmers and businesses, vicars and landowners, magistrates and town councillors. They describe and date churches and chapels and other important buildings.  They don't list employees or the unemployed.
Please bear in mind that most of the material listed on this site has been indexed or transcribed. It is not an original source so may contain errors. It is important that it is used only as a guide.
