South Dublin Workhouse writing - help needed deciphering please
« on: Sunday 03 March 19 16:11 GMT (UK) »
Hello all,

I am researching entries in the South Dublin workhouse and cannot make out any of the wording in column 13 under "No of children if not in workhouse and therefore not entered in column 4"  :-\
Here is a selection of what I am seeing. ALL help greatly appreciated!!

Thanks Millepede, as this is the workhouse and these 3 words appears lots of time I don't think it is a reference to bravery.

I thought it was something for ‘brewery’.

It looks as though the headings have been ignored as there seems to be an address in Column 12 rather than a name.

I thought the 5th & 7th line said the same thing, I wondered also if the last words began with a "C"

My thoughts too Heywood, that the headings have been ignored. However the 4th entry down references a 2 yr old baby girl so brewery wouldn't fit  :-\ Still perplexed
Column 12 says "Cork Street Hospital" and next line down say "Do"
