STARTING YOUR RESEARCH

 

Before you start your research try and collect as much information as possible from family sources. However, do not be surprised if family legends do not turn out to be true. Have an idea of what you would like to achieve. It should be possible to trace your family to the early 1800s. Make a list of the surnames and placenames and possible spelling variations. There is a lot of information available and the unusual can make your researches easier. It is usually easier to start in the present and search backwards. 

 

Surnames

 

Certain surnames and forenames are particular to Wexford and the south-east in general. Also the pronunciation of some names is particular to Wexford. The spelling of surnames has changed over time and has standardised in modern times. The older the records, the greater the variation in spellings.

 

The following is a list of Wexford surnames from the Griffiths Valuation of the 1860s: http://www.wexfordtown.ie/files/WT Surnames 1860.htm

 

The following link has some information on the distributions of surnames in the 1860s, the variants of spelling and their history: http://www.irishtimes.com/ancestor/surname/index.cfm

 

The following link gives a number of online references on Irish names: http://www.libraryireland.com/Names.php

 

The following link is to the comprehensive John O’Hart “Irish Pedigrees or, The origin and stem of the Irish nation” (1892 edition):

 

Irish Pedigrees, Vol. I: http://www.archive.org/details/irishpedigreesor01byuohar

Irish Pedigrees, Vol. II: http://www.archive.org/details/irishpedigreesor021892byuohar

[Note: The text versions are faster to download, but may contain reading errors. The PDF version is a searchable facsimile.]

 

Placenames

 

The smallest ‘administrative’ unit of the state is the townland, followed by the civil parish, the barony and the county. Other administrative districts are the Poor Law Union (PLU) and District Electoral Division (DED).

 

Standardisation of the spelling of townlands and civil parish names was a result of the Ordinance Survey in the 1830s. Official records after that date usually use the standardised spelling. Counties that had a high level of Norman settlement, have a high number of townlands and civil parishes. In Wexford, there are over 2,300 townlands and 134 civil parishes. 

 

The following is a link to a list of townlands with the standardised spelling from the Griffiths Valuation:

 

Alphabetical: http://www.wexfordtown.ie/files/WT Placenames 1860 alpha.htm

Alphabetical by Civil Parish: http://www.wexfordtown.ie/files/WT Placenames 1860 cp.htm

 

The following link will give you a map of Civil Parishes. If you click on the name or on the map, it will give you a list of the Townlands in that Civil Parish. You can also search by clicking on "Placenames", but you need to use the standardized spelling:

http://www.irishtimes.com/ancestor/fuses/civilparish/index.cfm?fuseaction=GetMap&CityCounty=Wexford&UserID=

 

PLU's were districts created under the Poor Law Relief Act of 1838 (aka the Poor Law). PLU's became 'General Registrar's Districts', areas within which births, deaths and marriages were compiled. Some districts covered areas that are outside of county boundaries. There are five PLUs for the county of Wexford:

 

Enniscorthy (also includes a small part of the county of Carlow)

Gorey

New Ross (also includes a small part of the counties of Carlow and Kilkenny)

Shillelagh (also includes parts of the counties of Carlow and Wicklow)

Wexford

 

The Roman Catholic (RC) Parish is usually different in size and shape to the civil parish, although they may have the same name. Understandably this can lead to confusion. The RC parish also uses the same townland names but not necessary the same boundaries. The following is a link to the RC parishes and their townlands:

Church Records

 

Roman Catholic:

 

The Church records available vary from parish to parish. The following link will give you a map of Roman Catholic (RC) parishes. If you click on a parish, you will see dates and records available. The Roman Catholic and Anglican records are available on microfilm from the Wexford Town library.

http://www.irishtimes.com/ancestor/browse/counties/rcmaps/wexfordrc.htm

 

Ferns Parish Records: http://www.wexfordtown.ie/files/RC Parish Records.pdf

 

It has been reported that the Wexford Town Library have additional parish records not available in the National Library e.g. Crossabeg from 1794.

 

The catholic baptism and marriage records online database was previously available from the Yola Farmstead & Wexford Genealogy Centre, but they do not seem to be still in business. Church records can be illegible and very hard to search unless you have dates.

The following government website has a large number of CoI records for Wexford people, registered in Dublin, Carlow etc. Also the later marriage records include the addresses of the parents of the brides and grooms, including many from Wexford. Unfortunately, these are not included as part of the search and you have to look at the actual registers.

State Registration

 

The State registration of marriages in Ireland began in 1845 and births and deaths in 1864. Poor Law Union - or PLU's were districts created under the Poor Law Relief Act of 1838 (aka the Poor Law). PLU's became 'General Registrar's Districts', areas within which births, deaths and marriages were compiled. Some districts covered areas that are outside of county boundaries.

 

The books of registrations are indexed according year (later quarter of the year), volume and page. The registration books are stored at the Oifig An Ard-Chláraitheora (General Register Office). Photocopies of entries in the registers are available at a current cost (2011) of €4 in person (plus a search fee of €2) and €6 by post. Photocopies contain exactly the same information as a Certificate but are only of use for research purposes. Details and application forms are available at:

http://www.welfare.ie/en/Pages/Apply-for-Certificates.aspx

 

These records up to 2013 are also available online from the State genealogy website [July 2014] [Note: These records have been removed July 2014 but may return in a more limited date range] :

 

http://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp

 

However, the records are not complete, especially marriage and death records. As such, you should compare results with Findmypast.ie and LDS [up to 1958]. With regard to birth records you can search the post 1900 records by the mothers surname which is a major advantage.

Freeholders of Wexford

1775. Sir, We whose names are hereunto subscribed, anxious for the honour, and for the prosperity of the county of Wexford, earnestly entreat you to read, with attention, an explanation of the motives which induced Mr. Ogle not to solicit vote or interest prior to the late general election. It is the substance of an elegant verbal address from that gentleman to the freeholders, convened by the high sheriff, on Friday the 30th of June, 1775, in consequence of a requisition from a number of respectable freeholders. It was taken down by a person present, and printed in the Wexford paper of the 3d of July, 1775; it will be re-printed, at our particular desire, in the Wexford Chronicle for Monday next. http://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/4872285  [Reproduction of original from National Library of Ireland. Signed by Robert Doyne and eight other interested parties. Note: Not listed in Catelog]

NEWSPAPER RECORDS

 

Irish National newspapers have many lists of names and addresses of contributors to various causes; Nationalist/political, Church and Charities. An interesting one is the amount of money collected in the early 1870s for the relief of the French in the Franco-Prussian War. Newspapers are hard to search unless you have dates. Online databases are a lot easier.

 

The Echo newspaper has regular columns of historical and family interest:

Foreign Newspapers

 

Foreign Newspapers can have information on emigrants and “news from Ireland”, which can then be used as reference dates for local papers. These are some of the online databases:

For Example:

21 October 1887 New Zealand Tablet – Irish News

Dublin.— The first ties of the Intercounty Hurling and Football Championship were played on July 20, at Elm Park, Merrion. The following were the counties and the teams which represented them :— Wexford, Castlebridge Hurling Team ; Galway, Meelick Hurling Club ; Louth, Dundalk Young Ireland Society F. C; Waterford, Ballydufl Lower F. C. ; Limerick, Commercial F. O. ; Meath, Dowdstown F. 0. The Limerick Commercial, in charge of P. Treacy (captain), and the Ballyduff men, in charge of Tom Nolan (captain).on arrival at Kingsbridge received an enthusiastic welcome from a couple of thousand Metropolitan Gaels (which included the greater part of the C. J. Kickhams) and the Emmets (coal-porters) Fife and Drum Band, which played them to the Provincial Hotel. The Castlebridge (Wexford) men, who were accompanied by Father Wall, President, E. Walsh Chairman County Wexford Executive G.A.A., and N. Kehoe, Hon. Sec., received a splendid reception on arrival at Harcourt street, by a large crowd, who escorted them to Elm Park. The play created great excitement, but passed off without a hitch. In the football matches Dundalk Young Ireland Society beat Ballyduff Lower by a goal and 8 points to 3 points, and Limerick Commercials beat Dowdstown (Meath) by 3 goals and 3 points to 2 points Wexford, represented by Castlebridge, made a brave but futile struggle at hurling against Galway, whose champion team, Meelick, won by 2 goals and a disputed goal and 8 points to a goal for Castlebridge.
