History of High Easter >> White's Directory 1848
White's Directory of Essex 1848 - list of inhabitants.
If you wish to trace any of these people on the census returns, the nearest census date for this 1848 directory is the 1851 census.
Please note, however, that the 1851 census returns for High Easter are missing from the census returns at the Public Record Office.
Note: the directory lists the names in the following order: Surname, First Name. It also abbreviates names. These have been reversed and typed in full to assist research.
My ancestor lived here at this time, but why aren't they listed here? Answer: Not everyone appeared in a trade directory. Please read our Trade Directories article.
You should also consider newspaper archives. With millions of pages now online, there is always the possibility of finding articles featuring your ancestors. Discover how to explore newspaper archives.
