back to the original question - do we know the Registrar's district for this cert ?

I've had a browse up and down Wexford town and the nearby coastal townlands within the Registrar's district on the OSI maps, but haven't located anything named SeaView... was worth a try

Wexflyer, in answer to one of your original queries.I think, but am not certain that  Seaview Avenue was built in the early to mid 1800s . . I am just going by the fact that the other houses in Trinity St. were built around that time.

This map of around 1845 does not show Seaview

Not necessarily - there were a few years to go with William Street opening up.

The houses in Sea View Avenue and the cul de sac next door (Trinity Place) are of similar design and are most likely to have been constructed around the same period.

The earliest date for which I can find a reference amongst my bits & pieces to the existence of Sea View Avenue is 1st January 1893 as noted in the Bride Street Church baptism register.

Trinity Place is recorded in the 1890 baptism register so itís likely Sea View Avenue was also in existence around this date.

It would be interesting to know exactly when these houses were built.


Hi i've just joined rootschat as i'm looking to establish when the houses in sea view avenue were built - anybody got any further with this query?

my main reason for asking is my father (whelan) and grandparents (whelan/saunders) and other relatives (roche) lived there, moving between several of the houses, from before the 1901 census (and up to the 1970s) and i believe (family tale) that my g-g-g grandfather ('captain o'connor' - father of my maternal g-g grandmother who married patrick saunders) built the houses

i'm trying to verify if this is true....................................

I am not certain but I think that Seaview Avenue may have been built around the 1830s. As that was when the area was developed after the building of the nearby Wexford Dockyard.

However Nick map above seems to prove otherwise. I will try to discover if there is any info in local papers of the time.
