Castle Hill Street Wexford
« on: Tuesday 02 June 09 10:18 BST (UK) »
I have found my Great Grandparents on the 1911 census  ;D

There address is down as Castlehill Street, South Wexford, Parish of St Michaels of Fiagh, ward St Mary's, Dist Electoral Div Wexford WO2 Urban.

I cannot locate a Castlehill Street and wondered if anybody could help...

I know there is a Hill Street, which has a castle at the top of it which houses the council offices ......

Castle Hill street & Kevin Barry Street are the common names for this street - the latter was to be the official one but like so many such intentions in Wexford the people rebelled by deciding not to change.
This and many other streets will feature in my book The Streets of Wexford to be published later this year in aid of The Tracie Lawlor Trust for Cystic Fibrosis.

Thank you so much for your reply.  I have a description of the house my Great Grandfather lived, it said it was brick built, with a slate roof, they had 5 rooms and 4 window at the front of the house.  His occupation was a coach driver. I would like to find out if it still exists but dont have a door number yet.  I would be very interested in buying your book when it goes on sale.  Thank you again

Hi

the family are

Patrick Furlong coachdriver born 1864
Mary Furlong 1866
Patrick Furlon 1894
Mary Furlong 1896
Christina Furlong 1895
Maggie  Furlong 1899
John Furlong 1900
Mark Furlong 1903
Charles Furlong 1905

My grandmother Annastacia Furlong was at this time in Dublin, her sister Molly was not living at home at the time of the 1911 census.  Havn't found them on the 1901, but will look when I go to Wexford in July.

I would like to find out if it still exists but dont have a door number yet. 

According to the online 1911 Census, they lived at No. 12 Castlehill Street.

Maybe I'm mis-reading the Census or I misunderstand your question.

The Furlong household has no house number in the 1911 census- 12 is the number on the form.
