How old is this house?
« on: Tuesday 02 July 19 22:45 BST (UK) »
This house in Knocknagranshy, Limerick, is described in the 1911 census as having stone walls, a slate, iron or tile roof, with 7-9 rooms,  and 7 windows in the front of the house.

Can anyone tell me how old it might be?

Have you got a google maps link to it?
If you have the exact spot you could see if it's on the older maps on http://map.geohive.ie/mapviewer.html
You could also look for it on Griffith's Valuation and the Tithe Applotment books, difficult to know if it's the same building of course.
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

Thanks for the link. Not sure how to use GeoHive but I managed to find the house. How do I tell the date?

Knocknagranshy doesn't make the list on the built heritage survey.

See Base Information and mapping, open that and there are some old maps on the drop down list they are dated, see if the house is on any of them.

Thanks, that's brilliant! It doesn't show up on either of the old maps so that narrows down the time frame.

Is it on the 25" that goes up to 1913 but starts 1888, so if it's in 1911 it should in theory be on than, of course it's a fairly wide time frame.

Yes, that's the map. I checked Griffiths - it wasn't there then.
