Agreed, Cronin. The 'n' in Waldron, immediately below, looks similar.

Looking for the address here, which would have been a Court in Dun Laoghaire. Looks like "Price's"? However, that name doesn't appear in this book which lists the names of now gone courts in DL: "Conditions of the Poor in Kingstown 1850-70" (PDF available via Google)

It does look like Prices. Is it possible to see the rest of the page?

Could it be Pius, after the Pope?

Courts were named after the person who owned them.

No court in Kingstown / DunLaoghaire was owned by any pope.

What a fantastic resource! You may be able to help me with this...




In the 5th line from the top, the entry is George of George Molyneux Bríd? Carty Sp Jno? Blay? Magt ????

Interestingly, 3 lines down, listed as a sponsor, is a similar looking name as the last name on that entry, where it looks like Clary.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give.

Edit. I inserted the incorrect image link for BB use

I'd say the last bit is Margt (short for Margaret) Connor
Jno is John or Jonathan

Biddy is written on another line and the B looks similar to the mother's first name but it's blurry. Brid's a good guess but I don't see an R.

Thanks, PinkyPinky. As you're of the same view that it is B + id, was it common for Bid to be used as a shortened form of Biddy/Bridget, as Bríd is??

Given that they're not family names for further searching, the sponsors' names don't actually matter all that much.

I think the last name might be 'Ennis' if that dot over what looks like an 'i' is real.

Agree with the others; Carty, John, some form of Bridget and Clary (colloquial Cleary).
