Calling on all amateur genealogists. I am stumped. I am looking at the Kingstown Baptisms in the Parish registers and find a place that looks like Ticknick or Tik Nick. I have looked at the old maps and can't find any place like it. I can't find tiknock either on the old maps.

Have a look at this entry birth number 856 where the place is almost clearly written

What does anyone make of that???? BangHead BangHead

Rocker,
It would appear that part of (the real) Ticknock were included in the 1901 census for Kingstown. See: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=603362.0

Skins,

That is marvellous. If you knew the hours I have spent going over old maps....when all I had to do was ask here. So some of the generations came from Glendalough to Tik Nick or thereabouts and I have also found some of them in DúnLaoghaire in the 1830's. My own Gt Gt Grandfather didn't leave Glendalough until about 1847/50 my Gt Grandfather was born in Booterstown Parish in 1850 (the shakings of the bag of a big family) and then they settled in the Rock.

U.C.D Digital libraries has put up old arrest books for 1905


Prisoners book 1 : 1905-07
Abstract: This volume, numbered 1, of the Dublin Metropolitan Police prisoners books details arrests dating from 1st April 1905 to 1st January 1908. The record for each arrest includes the name, age, address, occupation, alleged offence and, in most cases, the outcome of the case for those arrested. The volume also contains a name index of prisoners with references to the pages containing details of the charge.

Interesting. I found a few from Kingstown and Blackrock.

There is a place marked on modern maps as Kingstown, just north of Ticknock (or Tiknock).http://maps.osi.ie/publicviewer/#V2,716800,725548,9,3
Ticknock Road is marked on old maps here http://maps.osi.ie/publicviewer/#V2,716761,724371,11,9

Thank you for those maps Gulliver. Some times i wish I had a time machine to go back and see what was actually happening with the family in the 1800's. so few snippets of records and they seemed to move to where the jobs were to be had.

I'm loving them too Snowy. Can't get over the details they put down. So far I haven't found any of mine I'd say they used an alias :lol: :lol:

Book 4 - 1913 to 1915

http://digital.ucd.ie/view-media/ucdlib ... 59d79e230b

Book 5 - 1916 to 1918

http://digital.ucd.ie/view-media/ucdlib ... 83841cf2ed

There is an Index at the back of each book and it is in Alphabetical order.
Haven't looked at the 1916 one yet but it might be interesting.
