Early Trade and Residential Directories from TheGenealogist

TheGenealogist has released a collection of 24 Early Trade and Residential Directories that cover the years 1816-1839.

Over half are for London, the rest for England except one for Glasgow.

These early directories, now searchable by name for the period, mainly listed names of tradespeople and prominent citizens. Perhaps somewhat less than 10% of the population are included — by no means complete but an important resource pre-dating nominal censuses. In the release are:

Derby 1829 History, Gazetteer and Directory;
Devonshire 1830 Pigot's Directory;
Durham 1828 White's Directory;
Essex 1832-1833 Pigot's Directory;
