pigots directory of bedfordshire 1830 Pigot's Diectory of Bedfordshire 1830 An excellent county directory which gives details of each place, a short history and its facilities, and names and addresses of people with trades.

This book was once part of a multi-county volume, and although the parts (literally odd loose pages) were all obtained separately from different book dealers, Archive CD Books have been able to obtain them all, and have had the full set bound into one beautiful volume. Ref 0279 Price £13.90
pigots directory of bedfordshire 1839 Pigot's Directory of Bedfordshire 1839 An early county directory of the larger market towns and villages.

By the late 1830s, the Pigot's directories were becoming more detailed. This one is particularly useful as it was published just before the first census of 1841, and is an invaluable aid to tracking down those elusive ancestors as well as giving detailed information about the towns and villages in the county of Bedfordshire.
