Were there a lot of mansions on Primrose Hill? I know there is one that is still a tourist attraction to this day. There is a reference on a tree somewhere to Bridget being a Lady in Waiting to Lady St Clair, England. I thought that was more likely to be an English woman living in Ireland than a woman in England. But if that was the case you'd think she would give a better occupation that "servant".

Have you tried using GeoHive

Fingers crossed

Primrose Hill appears to be one house on Tivoli Road

Do you think it would be this place?

It seems to be in Primrose Lane now, not Tivoli Road, but Bridget seems to have written Tivoli Road on her address.

No it seems to be in Lucan, which is nowhere near the other place at Tivoli Rd, Kingstown. Must have been two Primrose Hills in Dublin.

In the newspapers a Mr Adam Findlater is given his address as Primrose Hill, 1890s early 1900s
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Dublin/Kingstown/Tivoli_Road/1319542/

I'll try to look at earlier dates
No luck with the newspaper and Adam's daughter Wanda wasn't born at that address so seems that family weren't there in 1881.

That's interesting. But yes, the earlier the better. Bridget married in 1881 and may have ceased work immediately, I guess. She had a daughter Annie at 23 Bolton St, North Dublin, on 3 May 1883. I'm not sure when they emigrated but Annie married in New York on 20 Jan 1900. I don't have a baptism for Annie, I don't know which church they would have been going to by then. North Dublin seems a fair way from Kingstown.

Can't find a Primrose Hill address for St.Clair family in the newspapers but they are coming back and forth to Kingstown from London etc.

Have another look later

Thanks, that's amazing. Seems that the St Clair story might be true after all!

If Ann married a Sloan, they emigrated when she was age 6 according to the death register. Parents and age match, but might not be who you are looking for.
