This may be a bit off the wall but here is a map showing Castle Hill street as Castle Street it dates from 1845.
Michael Street was Bunkers Hill and Lambert Place was a distant dream.

Hi Nicky.  Once again thank you for the extra bits of information.  A couple of times when I have been to Wexford, I stayed at the Swan View Guest house and in the back garden is a high wall.  Would that have been part of the original church or the castle.  Anne

Below is a list of individuals resident in Kevin Barry Street as at October 1936. The names appear in the 31st October 1936 edition of the Wexford People & is a list of rate payers assenting to a proposal concerning the water supply.

There are 18 names stated which is the same number of households in the 1911 census and so it could be assumed that this is an almost totally complete (if not complete) list of 'head of household'  - a sort of 20th Century Griffiths Valuation! 

The names that remain from the 1911 census for Castle Hill St are:

M Carroll
E Goodwin
J Marshall
R White
J O'Leary? (there is a  J Leary in the census)

Hi Shorts

Thankyou so much ! what a find, can see none of my gang are still there, I know that three of the kids were at this time up in Dublin at this point, wonder what happened to mom and dad and the others, at least I now have a clue as to the time period that they had gone.  My Patrick Furlong that lived there is down as a coachdriver on my nans wedding cert and also on census pages....wonder if he worked nearby.....not sure if coach driver would mean as in a coach/bus type or coach as in private carriage type that the wealthier people would have . Thanks again  :)

Hi Carol

If your G Grandparents are Patrick & Mary Furlong residing in Castle Hill St in 1911 but no longer there in 1936 then could this be them? 

It's the details taken from a Grave headstone in St Ibar's cemetery (see Seanmacs initial post in the topic heading "St Ibar's Cemetery - Wexford Town" )

If your father had Rossiter Cousins then it's an even stronger possibility. 

Mary Furlong, 5 Castlehill st
28/11/1927
hus, Patrick; 8/1/1934
grand-dtr, Marie Rossiter, 55, Whiterock view
11/2/1945 (12)
