1855/William Gould/../../../Post Office Directory **

My Great great grandparents were licensed victuallers starting in the mid 1860s in St Albans, through Berkhamsted and then to London. The first record is a birth certificate for my Great Grandfather John Ralph Elliot; and James and Annie Elliot have their address as Market Place, St Albans. This would be the Wellington, 26 Market Place, St Albans 1866. *
