This edition of the History, Directory and Gazetteer of the County, and of the Town and County of the Town of Nottingham by Francis and John White was published in 1844. With nearly 800 pages this is one of the key resources for Nottinghamshire. The intial part of the publication (over 100 pages) is a history of both the county and the town of Nottingham. This is followed by an alphabetical street listing of Nottingham, which is then followed by an alphabetical directory of people and their address, and then a directory by profession. The two listings of people run to 100 pages. The town of Nottingham directory is then followed by directories for the various towns, parishes amd hundreds of the county. The subsequent 430 pages is full of enormous detail on each location including listings of many of the inhabitants and trades people. The publication finsihes with the market and port town of Gainsborough. Again there is a full trades directory for the town. With listings of thousands of names and huge amounts of detials about each of the towns in the county, this is an extrmemly useful resource for anyone doing research in to Nottingham.
