Help on finding a London Exchange share list

I am looking for some source that would list (like a share list of the London Exchange), ie what stocks were for sale or available on the exchange in the early 1840. I'm unable to find anything like that so I believe I may be using the wrong key words. Any suggestions?

What I would be interested in finding is what the company names are of stocks that would have been available in that time period.

TIA

It looks as though the LSE archives are still paper and not digitised:
Guildhall Library Manuscripts Section - Records of the Stock Exchange, London

"Charlotte Bronte wrote:
My Shares are in the York & North Midland Railway. ... The original price of Shares
in this Railway was £50. At one time they rose to 120; and for some years gave a
dividend of 10 per cent; they are now down at 20, and it is doubtful whether any
dividend will be declared this half-year."
