The People who lived in Bilston

Extracts from the Post Office Directory of Staffordshire, 1864

Authored by Geoffrey Hugh Lindop
Edition: 2

A review of the trades carried out by people of the English town of Bilston in Staffordshire in 1864.

Geoffrey Hugh Lindop, former editor of Modern Astronomer and for many years a writer specializing in astronomy and astronautics, has changed his focus from stars to family history. His mother, Nancy Lindop, spent half a century conducting genealogical research leaving Geoffrey her handwritten notes - a valuable research tool. He formed a publishing company - Mercianotes - to bring her research to a wider public.

In this compilation derived from the Staffordshire Post Office Directory of 1864, he has used an easy to read modern font - an improvement on the small-print of the original. A classified section has been included, that was not in the original, and it is hoped will be a help to local historians.

Display advertisements have also been included, derived from information in the original, that add an insight into the work of the people of Bilston at that time. The book also includes descriptions of the town written at the time of the original publication that provide a virtual eye-witness commentary giving a expert guide to the 19th century visitor.
