White's Directory of Essex 1863 - list of inhabitants.
If you wish to trace any of these people on the census returns, the nearest census date for this 1863 directory is the 1861 census.
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.

New options from Findmypast
Findmypast have announced a change to their offerings to UK family historians.
There are now three options: Starter, Plus and Pro. The big change is that Plus and Pro now allow access to the 1939 Register even on a monthly package.
Their website contains more information and sets out the difference between the options.
