Matiers Directory of Lurgan 1835

This book is the first Directory of Belfast and surrounding areas published by William Matier, at a time when the area was growing very quickly as a consequence of industrialization. The directory covers the city of Belfast and Ballymacarrett, but this part of the directory covers only the Lurgan area. The full directory gives a full trade directory, and alphabetical lists of all professions, noblemen, gentry, merchants, traders residing in the city and its neighbourhood. This is followed by a full and detailed breakdown of all the public institutions in the city, including their principal staff members, and a full list of all churches. The book also contains many advertisements by traders and merchants, but none are reproduced here.
