KINGSBRIDGE RESIDENTS IN THE UNIVERSAL BRITISH  DIRECTORY c. 1794

Use the scroll bar to view the complete page

 

The Universal British Directory of Trade, Commerce & Manufacture was issued in separate volumes over a period of 7 to 8 years between 1791 and 1798. As the different volumes were published, updates and alterations were made so that no listing can  be specific to a single year but rather, to the final years of the 18th century.

No street locations were given for the traders. The original spelling has been retained.
