London Genealogy

 
Description

"The metropolis of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland . . . extends from Woolwich and Bow to Fulham and Hammersmith, and from Highgate to Norwood, including the cities of London and Westminster, with their liberties, and the towns, parishes, &c. &c. which cover this vast area. The streets of the city, with the exception of the great thoroughfares, are for the most part narrow and irregular; but the main lines of traffic and communication are wide and noble, as are the more recently built parts of this enormous city."
from Barclay's Complete and Universal English Dictionary, 1842
