1911 Census of Sallynoggin area

Postby Oillil » Thu Sep 10, 2015 10:02 am

How would I identify the residents of the Sallynoggin area in the 1911 Census? What was the area around the Quarry and 'The Woods' near the present church called in the 1911 census?

For some reason the OSI mapviewer is not working today or that is a good one to pan around the area. I had relatives living just opposite the Noggin Inn and that was known as avondale in Kingstown No 2 district here is a link to kingstown No 2

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/p ... own_No__2/

other areas were also known as thomastown and are in kingstown no 4 area

have a little snoop around the Avondale area and see what you find.

Thanks for that Rocker. I think I have identified the area known as The Quarry and The Woods as the site of the former Glenagarey House, now long gone. It was occupied by Halliday Bruce Esq., a member of the Royal Irish Academy and a botanist and horticulturalist around 1839.

Gulliver posted an interesting account under Sallynoggin Progress
Anyone interested in the history of Sallynoggin should look up the history of Thomastown..... Thomastown was the original name of the townland on which half of Sallynoggin was built. All of the areas to the east of Sallynoggin Road (Woodies side) including all of the "Pearse" places (Pearse Road, Street, Gardens etc) are officially part of the old Thomastown, which was 210 acres of open land stretching over almost as far as Avondale Road in Glenageary with just a few houses. The biggest house there was Glenageary House which was close to where the Sallynoggin Church is now. Glenageary House was built before 1800. 150 years ago it was owned by Halliday Bruce, a colourful Dublin stockbroker. The entrance was via a long avenue on Glenageary Road. Thomas Pim, the next owner, was one of the very wealthy Pim Quaker family who owned much of Monkstown. Thomas was the one who had a very large shop in George's St in Dublin which traden up to the late 1950s or early 1960s.
Later, Glenageary House was a centre for horse-breeding, but fell into bad repair over the years and was finally demolished in the 1960s or 70s.
Thomastown was cut in half by the new road from the Glenageary Roundabout to the Graduate Roundabout.

I live in Thomageary so. Sorry Nogginers, I'm a blow-in from just down the Hill but I'm well educated on the culture up here but I can't admit to people that I got sent to "The Noggin" for my sins. :D
