would sombody be able to look at a kellys directory or such for 1891?
My gt.grandfather was around the area and i'm hoping to find other records beside the census' to throw some light on him and his family.
His name was John Hatton.

If you go the Historical Directories web site at http://www.historicaldirectories.org/ then click on the 'Find by Keywords' button at the next screen you can select Shropshire (or elsewhere) in the top drop down list. I would then just enter your own Keyword(s) "John w/2 Hatton" (without the quotes but with the w/2 which looks for the two words close together) in the appropriate box, leaving Decade and Key Name as 'All'. Then just click the 'Find Directories' button and see what comes up.
When the list of Directories comes up on screen click on the word 'Directory' alongside whichever one(s) interest you and then I usually click on the 'Next Hit' button to go from one hit to the next.

I've had a bit of a look but nothing definate yet,i don't think i'm going to find John that easily but there were a few other Hatton's in the Kent directorys which i'm going to pursue,
