Tivoli Avenue

Post by Derrindaffderg » Mon Dec 30, 2013 8:40 pm

Hi folks - The Mother did a family tree a few years back. As part of her research she found that her Great Grandparents were living in number 4 Tivoli Avenue in 1901 as per the census. http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/p ... e/1319508/

She has been unable to ascertain exactly where it was. I told her I'd ask on here. Basically any information on where exactly it was, when it was built and when it was demolished. (I can't find it on the 1911 census) If anyone can help she'd be delighted. Apologies if this has been covered before.

Go raibh maith agaibh. thumleft

If you look further into the Census return you will see that it is
in the Parish of Monkstown. I think you wish have to look at some
OSI maps to find it's exact location.
If GerryT is looking in she may be able to give you some help, I
think some of her ancestors are listed on that Avenue.

Hi, My great, great, great grandparents William and Julia Kelly lived on Tivoli Avenue in the 1860s and 1870s. It was located between the current locations of Desmond Avenue and Tivoli Terrace East. It was a row of small houses and cottages. It was demolished to build the local authority scheme including Desmond Avenue in the early 1900s.

DD your post started me looking at Tivoli Avenue.

I have been looking at the Ballance family on and off since the 1911/1901census came out and although I found Richard Ballance in the 1911 census I could never find him in 1901. When I looked at Tivoli Avenue..... lo and behold there was a Richard Balance ( one l) at 11 Tivoli Ave...he couldnt write so the person who filled out the form probably decided the name was spelt with one L. that has cleared up one gap for me.... wuu

Denis,

Isn't that the way with everyone born and bred in Dun Laoghaire?
We all played together and knew everyone's granny, aunties etc.

Few would have your preciseness. But you're right we did know everyone's granny,uncle and auntie so unlike today where you hardly know your next door neighbour's surname.

HiRocker,
I have a Margaret Ballance in my family. She was my great, great grandmother, born in Kingstown in 1841 and she married Thomas Tormey. They lived in Corrig Court, Patrick Street and then in Mulgrave Street. We must see if we are related. I guess many Dun Laoghaire people are.

What a co-incidence. I too have a Balance in my background. A very posh military type - preferred to be known by his full double-barrel name -

Major Overdrawn-Balance

He was very well-known, especially in financial circles. I often get letters asking how he is getting on.

M :D

GerryT,
This is a great lead. I have just been tipping at that family...and must go now and search the parish records. My uncle by marriage was Leo Ballance who moved to Sallynoggin when the houses were built. I'd say Margaret could be his Grand aunt. Since i have been delving into the family history I'd say most people in Dún Laoghaire and Blackrock were married in.

I had this gas Cavan friend who had theory that when there was no transport men and women were delighted to marry the nearby neighbours, then came the bicycle and men peddled to the next village to suss out the talent...then came the car and the plane and our families are scattered all over the globe... :lol: :lol: social history according to the man from Ballyhaise.
