Bentley's Directory of Worcestershire (1840-1842) 

Here we have all seven volumes covering Worcestershire on one CD (Bromsgrove, Evesham, Dudley, Stourbridge, Kidderminster, Worcester & the volume for the County). The volumes were published between 1840 and 1842, and issued separately to subscribers. The volumes contain thousands of names, addresses, trades & occupations, and a comprehensive description of every place in the county and its history. Bear in mind that directories such as this do not include just businesses, but anyone with a trade. So that includes normal people such as gardeners, dress makers, chimney sweeps, and so on. In addition, we have a large hand coloured full county map of Worcestershire of 1840 - and also superbly detailed street maps of Dudley and Worcester - a great rarity in old directories, as the maps have usually been removed. That's not all. There are dozens of pages of the most delightful trade advertisements, beautifully and finely engraved. Kindly loaned to the project by Dudley Archives & Local History Service.
