How to use the Street & Trade Directories
The first few pages are dedicated to Regional Information such as poor law union representatives, local clergy, the time the local post or coaches depart, lists of private schools, local JPs etc…
The next pages are the Street Index. Streets that fall within Prestbury have been copied in alphabetical order. A list of streets and terraces we have included in the index can be found further on in this document.
(Research hint: Some houses will have been renumbered or renamed over the years, so you may need to start in more recent history and work your way backwards to be sure you have the correct address.)
Following the streets section there is usually a list of Detached Houses. Again any pages that contain a reference to Prestbury have been copied.
Following this section is the Trades Index this lists local trades people and we have copied any pages which contain an entry for Prestbury. This section is also sometimes followed by Advertisements for local businesses.
