Charlotte Street, now the Centenary Stores. My connection to this photo is via brother of my Great grandmother. Matthew Doyle live here in 1901. His wife died there after birth of 3rd son and he left Wexford town shortly afterwards.

Hello all, I am working on the Redmond family= a branch that emigrated to Canada in the 1700s, from Wexford?- first I believe to Nova Scotia, and then to Prince Edward Island. My direct ancestor is Matthew Redmond, I believe his father is David ( William) Redmond who was born circa 1740- who married Mary Devereux and then Judith Moser ( Matthew's Mum). It is difficult to get any trace of David- quite possibly he joined the 56 Foot Regiment and that how he and Mary came to be in Canada.  Any ideas would be wonderful-xx

Just wondering if anyone has any information on the O'keeffe/Keeffe family that lived in Wexford in the late 1800's to early 1900's around The Faythe. 

I have some information but don't know a lot about this family. It would be great to get a bit more.

Hi Nick

I am searching for information about my gggrandfather James Furlong. I believe he was born in 1819 in Wexford and married Mary Nance. His father was also James and mother was Bridget Kease. I do not know anything about his father. James and Mary had several children including Henry Francis Furlong (born in 1848). Henry Francis Furlong immigrated to the US (Iowa) in 1866 and both his father and mother appeared to have died in the fall of 1864 in Wexford. I am trying to find out more about James I think he was a blacksmith or an iron monger in Wexford Town in 1855 to 1864 time frame. I have some information about living on Williams Street or working on Gibson Street. James children were born in Clogher in County Louth not sure why the family moved there. Anything you might know about this time period and James and Mary would be helpful.
thanks Walter

Hello Nick,
I am researching my Kirwan, Cloak, Power, and Hogan ancestors from mid-19th century Wexford Town. I have been enjoying the thread immensely and look forward to seeing more!
