Dorset 1842/4 Pigot's Directory


Cat No.:   GB0217:

First published in 1842, and then reprinted in 1844.

Surveyed in 1841, in the same year as the first census. That makes this directory particularly useful for finding any person who had a trade in the county, and then locating them in the census. The book contains good descriptions of all towns and main villages (although all places are included, but perhaps listed under the nearest main village). It also contains the original 1842 map of the county.

This is another book that we found as a loose collection of pages with no cover, and which was once a part of a much larger book. So, over a period of time, we collected all the pieces for the counties that were included, and had the book rebound with all of them that were in the original Pigot's publication.
