Familyrelatives.com releases online new Trade Directory records for 120 Counties 1824 - 1846
The Pigot's and Slater's Directories form a unique collection of trade, commercial and occupational information from 1824 - 1846 for England, Wales and Ireland going back as far as the time of George IV when Britain was about to become the workshop of the world.
The directories contain all the major professions as well as the nobility, gentry and clergy. All the addresses are identified including trades and occupations, even taverns and public houses.
Towns and parishes are detailed for each area and the introduction contains key information including the number of inhabitants (taken from the census returns) with a geographical and topographical description and the local history. A description of the main trades, produce, manufacturers and industries of the area or town are also covered.
