Directories are invaluable to the local historian for information about the commercial and social life of the county. The development of an area or its decline can be studied using the evidence found in a run of directories but should be supplemented by other sources of information such as newspapers and census returns.
Directories began to appear in the latter part of the 17th century to meet the needs of the developing business community but it wasn't until the middle of the 18th century that the publication of commercial directories rapidly expanded. The first directory to be published in Lincolnshire was by William White in 1826 and the last was published by Kelly's in 1937. Directories usually cover a city, county or group of counties and featured every few years rather than annually.
