The 1901 Irish Census records John Brabazon as a 37 year-old, County Dublin born, Silver Chaser. He is married to 36 year-old, Dublin City born, Mary. They live with their four children, Esther 11, Bridget 9, Alice 6, and Thomas 3, and John's mother, Alice, aged 67 years of age.

J. HILLIARD

Tipperary


The evictions on the Smith-Barry Estate at Tipperary were continued yesterday. John Merrigan. Longford, was first put out, after which the following shopkeepers in the town were evicted, Henry Ryan, town councillor and provision merchant; John Godfrey, grocer; J. Hilliard, jeweller; John Bourke, gas director; Miss King, stationer and delf warehouse; and Jeremiah Dawson, town clerk and coal merchant. No resistance was offered. Other shopkeepers are abandoning their houses in the town, and shops and houses are being built for the evicted tenants on the estate of Mr. Stafford O'Brien, which adjoins the Smith-Barry property, and has the advantage of being nearer the railway station.

Source: The Morning Post (London) - 5th December 1889


'J. Hilliard' may be mis-print, and the above very likely refers to William Hilliard (see: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=18350&p=85397&hilit=hilliard#p85397 ), but is recorded here should any further information regarding 'J. Hilliard' come to light.

DUFFNER BROTHERS

29, Shop Street, later 15, West Street, Drogheda, and 40, Clanbrassil Street, Dundalk, and Newry


Image
Duffner Bros. - Drogheda and Dundalk - 1958


Very likely to be identified with the Duffner's in Tipperary, who were one of many German jewellers who established jewellery and watchmaking businesses in Ireland during the second half of the 19th century, including the Ganter’s in Dublin, the Faller’s in Galway and Londonderry, the Wehrle’s in Sligo, the Maurer’s in Limerick and Ennis, the Hilser’s in Cork, the Hakenjos's in Dundalk.

The Clanbrassil Street, Dundalk store closed in 2014, it has been trading for 86 years having thought to have been opened in 1928.

EDWARD DODD

Dublin


The 1901 Irish Census records Edward Dodd as a 52 year-old, English born, Silver Plater (?). He is married to 48 year-old, English born, Esther. They reside at 1.1, Eccles Place, Dublin, which is described in the census as a private dwelling. Their religion was recorded as Protestant.

The 1911 Irish Census records that Edward appears to be 65(?), and Esther 46 years of age. His occupation is now recorded as, what appears to be, a Silver, Brass and Nickle Plater. He now states that he and his wife are Dublin City born. They now occupy one room at 102.5 in Dorset Street, Dublin, which is described in the census as a private dwelling. The census reveals that Edward and Esther have been married for 20 years and have no children.

Both census forms make for difficult reading.

FRANK KYLE GIBSON

Dublin


Frank Kyle Gibson was working at Hopkins & Hopkins, Sackville Street, Dublin at the time of its destruction during the Easter Rising 1916. He lost his workman's tools during that incident and claimed compensation through the Property Losses (Ireland) Committee (PLIC). His claim of £43 5s 4d appears only to have been partially successful as the Committee recommended a payment of just £7 13s 0d . His address at the time of the claim was recorded as 159, Emmet Road, Dublin.


This may be the same Frank Gibson, who, in the 1901 Irish Census, was recorded as a 29 year-old, Canadian born, Jeweller. He was unmarried and was residing as a boarder in the house of Jane Wilson at 4, Ormeau Avenue, Belfast. His religion was recorded as Irish Church.

The 1911 Irish Census records Frank Gibson as now aged 39 years, but born in Co. Derry. He has been married for two years to 25 year-old, Co. Antrim born, Hilda. They reside at 677, Lisburn Road, Belfast, which is described in the census as a private dwelling. They have one live-in servant. The census also notes that the couple have had one child, but it had not survived.

As to whether Frank Gibson of Belfast and Frank Kyle Gibson of Dublin are one of the same person, has yet to be confirmed, although there are only three Frank Gibson's in the 1901 census and six in the 1911 census.
