1 Dates of start and end of items is not necessarily precise as directories take time to add new and remove old entries
2 Some of the new sections are still under development as I decide how to best present the information
3 Do not panic if your street/house does not have recent date added, that only means I have not visited the street in recent years that is next stage to revisit.
This research was inspired by an earlier printed work in 1913 produced by Alexander Howell. He was a conveyancing solicitor and much of his research came from title deeds and the information contained within them. My research continues in this manner but using all sources available from original material such as he used to modern printed resources. I have attempted to maintain the accuracy of the information but may well have introduced errors in transposing the information. Should you wish to use the information then the original sources can be checked, in case of any transcription errors, except where the information is not referenced in which case I am the source.
Copyright remains with original sources, any use of this information should at least be credited to myself as collator of the information.
