Kelly's Directory 1879 of the Forest of Dean & Surrounding Areas
These directories give a full description and contain a wealth of information about a village, all the farmers, the tradesmen, important persons such as the Lord of the Manor, vicars, school teachers, post office staff, pub landlord and more.
Many thanks to May Brace who has kindly transcribed these directories and made them available.
