The 1911 Irish Census records Richard as a 59-year-old retired jeweller and widower. He is boarder at a house (14 occupants), 1, Cross Lane, New Ross.

There would appear to have been a third brother, as the 1901 Irish Census records Isabella Zimber, a 41-year-old, Co. Waterford born, Widow, residing at 30, Cross Lane, New Ross, with her sons, Joseph Zimber, a 17-year-old, New Ross born, Printer, and Fred Zimber, a 13-year-old, New Ross born, Watchmaker.

RICHARD RICHARDS

3, Charlotte Row, Gorey, Co. Wexford


ADJUDICATIONS IN BANKRUPTCY

DUBLIN

Richards, Richard, of 3, Charlotte-row, Gorey, in the County of Wexford, watchmaker and jeweller. May 15, Friday June 11 and Tuesday June 29. Casey and Clay, Solrs.


Source: The Irish Law Times and Solicitors' Journal - 5th June 1897


The 1901 Irish Census records Richard Richards as a 42-year-old, Gorey, Co. Wexford born, Watchmaker. He is married to 23-year-old, Gorey, Co. Wexford born, Margaret Ivy. The couple have four children, Florence 7, Charles 5, Emilie 3, Eileen Margaret 2 years of age. The family reside at 3, Charlotte Row, Gorey, which is described in the census as a private dwelling. Their religion was recorded as Church of Ireland.

The 1911 Irish Census appears to have no record of either, Richard, Margaret or Charles, and it is likely their end was a sad one. Emily (Emilie) and Eileen are described as 'Inmates' at the Birds Nest Charitable Institution at York Road, Kingstown, and Florence, now 17, a Nursery Maid Servant in Dublin.

Among the town's first orphanages was the 'Birds Nest' which was founded in 1859 by a Mrs. Smyley. The Birds Nest took orphaned children between five and twelve years of age. The girls were 'prepared chiefly for domestic service' and the boys afterwards went to one of the Dublin 'homes'. Known as 'The Institution', it was built in 1861 as a long narrow building on the slope of York Road. It is formed by a symmetrical halves which provided separate accommodation for 180 boys and girls. Although typically institutional in feeling, it is very well built in rough granite with brick window surrounds. It has lately been refurbished as apartments.

Richard Richards was the son of Robert Richards (b. 14-6-1848), and the grandson of Robert Richards, Watchmaker, Gorey (see below post).
