1854 Kings Co. Williamsburg Directory


Thanks to Judy Herbert for this contribution.  Here are her research notes:  from LDS Film #0824073

All Williamsburg entries appear first, followed by Smith in the Williamsburg Appendix (fire companies, civil positions, etc.) and then Smith in the Greenpoint & Bushwick sections (combined)of the directory.

The following abbreviations are used in the directory, and listed in a page at the front: n. = near, c = corner (of), Br = Brooklyn, h. = home

Note that names appearing all in caps indicate that the individual took out
advertising space in the directory. Where I was able to find the ad, I
transcribed it. All ads appear at the very bottom of this email.

I was unable to determine what an asterisk preceding the name indicated.
Note that for some reason, the names are not correctly alphabetized by given
name/initial in certain spots.

Things were spelled a bit differently back then, and I transcribed them just
as spelled (such as "segarmaker"). Also, often no space was left between
multiple words in the person's occupation, so I have typed them just as they
are on the film.
