I'm wondering if there is a summary or covering page / card somewhere for these census returns, with the usual identifiers on it (Poor Law Union, DED etc.) and someone back in the day has written these words as a comment on that page / card (but by chance, in the immediate vicinity of the townland / street), simply to highlight that the return for no. 301 is missing,then someone transcribing the documentation for the NAI has literally interpreted the words as part of the townland / street. then someone transcribing the documentation for the NAI has literally interpreted the words as part of the townland / street.  It's the only such instance I can find in the census so far.



That's exactly what I think happened, the enumerator made a note next to the address and the transcribers included in on all the addresses but only Anne O Connor refused and her form A is number 301.
