In 1766 there were approximately 30,000 inhabitants in Liverpool, and 6000 houses.  The directory contains the names and occupations of 1134 people deemed important enough to be mentioned with their addresses.  Where now would you find a grocer and slopman? There was one in Ranelagh street....need a peruke and barber? Try Water Street where you could also have a hat made [to hide the barber's work?] .  The list of jobs is fascinating, and some of the trades long lost to time.  Maybe you'll find your family name, and learn more about your history.
