Hi Debi Could you please look under Carpenters and see if there is a John BARKER listed? Thanks Lyla

Hi Would you mind having a look for Riggs, a cordwainer please. Mine was Benjamin, 1825 might be too early for him, but his father I believe was also one. (bootmaker) Thanks so much Diane

Hi Debi, Thanks for your very kind offer. Please could you see if there's a Charles (or any first name) Wise who is probably a jeweller. He's sometimes a lapidary! but I think that counts as jeweller... Ta Jane

Hi Bubba Boo There are no Leadbitters at all listed in the directory. Its a Commercial Directory and thus some idea of your anscetors trade would be ideal info to go with the names. Much happiness Debi
