As far as I know they were the only Berry's at the time in Dukes Lane.  They were there in the 1930's.  My mum Babs was born in 1931 then moved up to Wolfe Tone
but dont know when.  Her Grandmother Barbara Doran was from New Ross and my mum said her grandfather John Berry met her while working in New Ross and brought her to Wexford Town to live when they married.  John Berry was from Wexford Town.  Barbara died when she was 30 in 1916 when my Grandad Andy Berry was 10.  My mum grew up with Katie Fenlon, school etc.  Came to England together to work.  Lifelong friends.  Katie came to see her the day before she died last August as my mum asked for her.  I asked Katie if she knew anything about the Doran side of our family but did not only that Barbara Doran died young and left young children. 

Thanks for your help

The following is a list of ratepayers (Heads of family) appearing in a Wexford newspaper dated October 1936. (Duke Street/Lane had by now been officially re-named Thomas Clarke Street)

It suggests that A (Andrew?) Berry had moved from Duke Street to Wolf Tone Villas sometime before Oct 1936.

Thank you so much for that.  The A. Berry is my grandfather and with my nan and Mum they lived at 51 Wolfe Tone Villas.  My Grandfather on my Dads side is R. Callaghan and they lived at no. 35.  How wonderful.  A good few names I recognise and met many of them as a child visiting.  Thank you so much for that.

Regards

Hi Guys,

I'm new to this site and was googling my ancestors then got excited when I saw all the 'Swanson' activity on here.

My Great Grandmother and those before her were Swansons hailing from Wexford, my side of the family the emigrated to 'Ireland by the sea' - Liverpool. My G Grandmother was Mary Ann Swanson born in 1886 in Temperance Row, Wexford her Father who was a mariner was called James Swanson b. 1854 in Wexford. Her Mother was Mary Cleare b. 1859 we think in Wexford although this is un-confirmed. By 1891 this family including Mary Ann Swanson siblings were in Liverpool

I cannot find any Swanson living in Temperace Row in the 1901 or 1911 census except that in 1911 a 'Katy Cleare' was visiting number 28, this house number did not feature in 1901. Still trying to trace Swansons' and Cleares' in Wexford, I have heard Mary Cleare was an only child which was quite something in them days.

I have just unearthed a death for another James Swanson who died in Wexford 1879 aged 62 and I feel he maybe my GGG Grandfather, place of birth unknown, although family rumour has it they were sailors who came from Sweden, certainly his son was a mariner.

Anyway I have plenty of family info if there are Swansons out there who are related.
Regards,
Laura  ;D

I am delighted to report that at least some more of the Wexford Swanson descendants are alive and well, here on Merseyside today. As with Laura (with whom I am in contact) my wife is also descended from James Swanson, b.1854 in Wexford and his son also James, born in Wexford in 1884. They moved to Liverpool about 1890/92 based on the fact their son John was born in Wexford in 1888 and their next child, Sarah was born in Liverpool in 1892.

If only more Census records survived before the 1901 census, I feel sure we'd discover the Wexford Swansons were all part of the same family. As previously stated, the surname was uncommon in Ireland, while not so in Scotland where many families lived. Undoubtedly the name has Scandinavian origins which might not be surprising given the proximity of the Scottish 'highlands and islands' to Scandinavia and their common seafaring traditions.
Anyway, here's a photo of James Swanson (1854) taken in Liverpool about 1930, you never know, someone may see a family likeness(?) He'd have been about 76 in the photo, but lived until 1941 and the grand age of 87!!

The Irish Civil Register, which only began in 1864, has records of Swanson Wexford, and might be worth a look.
