A list of places in London in 1763

This list was transcribed by a visitor to this site, Ian Wraight, who has kindly made it available for display here. It is taken from pages 344 - 439 of "The Compleat Compting-house Companion: Or, Young Merchant and Tradesman's Sure Guide" published by William Johnston in 1763. This fascinating book contains everything you would need to know in order to set up and transact business in eighteenth century London.

The part reproduced here is an alphabetical list of how to find 8,000 streets, roads, courts and places etc. In order to make the list more user-friendly, I have tidied-up various inconsistencies and the alphabetical order, but places beginning with St. remain in amongst the rest. I have also removed some lists and placed them in separate sections at the end. There is still the usual confusion as to the spelling of Mary la Bonne, Marybone, Mary-le-bon etc., and several other places may get you guessing - that is half the fun.
