Lodging house keepers

This list of lodging house keepers was collated from street directories between 1839 and 1851. It is a clear indication of the huge number of women who were already providing lodgings for visitors by the mid-century. (Women also provided accommodation in their homes, and as owners of inns and hotels.)
