The Post Office Annual Directory and Calendar for 1843, Dublin. The Post Office Annual Directory and Calendar for 1843, Dublin.

Ref: IE0094
ISBN: 1-84630-277-3

Published from 1832 (or earlier) was the exceptionally rare Post Office Annual Directory and Calendar for Dublin city. It was published annually by John S. Folds, and should not be confused with either Pettigrew and Oulton's Dublin Directory, or the better known Thom's Directory.

This volume is the edition for 1843, containing some 650 printed pages, the full title of the original publication read as follows: The Post Office and Annual Directory Calendar for 1843, being the Sixth Year of the Reign of Her Majesty Queen Victoria, until the 20th June, Containing an Alphabetical List of the Nobility, Gentry, Merchants & Others in Dublin and the Vicinity, Kingstown, Etc., with a Variety of Useful Information.

This edition was published the year before the first edition of Thom's Dublin Almanac and Directory, and the Dublin Post Office Directory and Calendar did not survive the competition. However, for the year in which this edition was issued, it is the most complete directory available for Dublin and as such is a much- prized acquisition for genealogists and family historians. The useful information intimated in the title of this publication includes as one might expect various calendars for the year 1843; postage and carrier rates from Dublin to the rest of the country; interest tables and many advertisements, predominantly for life assurance companies. The publication also includes complete listings for all of the military, civil and religious establishments of Dublin City and County. These include the police, schools, hospitals, churches, landed gentry and the peerage of Ireland, which relatively speaking takes-up only a small proportion of this issue, some 130 pages.

The Post Office Directory proper is prefaced by an alphabetical list of the streets, lanes, etc., in Dublin and its immediate vicinity, followed by a list of the public buildings, banks and offices in the city. Although the Post Office Directory and Calendar does not include a streets directory for the capital and its suburbs, some three-hundred pages are given over to the alphabetical listings of the nobility, gentry, merchants and traders of Dublin, which compares extremely favourably with later editions of Thom's Dublin Almanac and Directory. There follows separate directories for the professions such as the legal profession, including barristers, attorneys, benchers of the King's Inns, medical practitioners, surgeons and apothecaries, and so on.

As one might expect from a Post Office Directory, the latter portion of this issue, some 100 pages, is taken-up with the General Post Office Directory. This consists of lists of the post towns of Ireland and post throughout Europe as well as the rates of carriage to these destinations. Of some particular interest is the Mail and Stage Coaches from Dublin. This provides the details from where all the stage coaches departed from in Dublin to destinations all over the country, times of departure and arrival as well as the intermediate stops on the coach's journey en route to its final destination.

As this is one of the earliest directories for Dublin that includes alphabetical listings for nobility, gentry, merchants and traders, this is a valuable acquisition for all family historians and genealogists.

The Post Office Dublin Directory and Calendar for 1858 The Post Office Dublin Directory and Calendar for 1858

Ref: IE0096
ISBN: 1-84630-279-X

First published in 1858 and republished here on fully-searchable CD-Rom is the twenty-six annual edition of the Post Office Dublin Directory and Calendar for 1858. Printed and published in Dublin by Alexander Thomas & Co., although similar in style and content, this publication is not to be confused with Thom's own Irish Almanac and Official Directory, first published in 1843.

The twenty-sixth edition of the Post Office Dublin Directory and Calendar contains just over 700 printed pages and can be seen as the complete official calendar and directory for Dublin for the year in which it was published. Beginning with an index to places in county Dublin, the Directory follows with a series of calendars for the year 1858. These include the calendars for law terms, university terms, religious feast days and festivals as well as solar and planetary information, such as the daily times for the rising and setting of the sun.

The Calendars for 1858 is followed by the Official Directory of Government Departments. This forms and extensive section of the the directory providing the names and addresses of all of the principal public functionaries throughout Ireland not just Dublin. The section includes civil and civic offices such as poor law authorities, schools, universities, schools of medicine, etc. Separate sections of the Post Office Dublin Directory include the Law Directory - detailing all of barristers, solicitors, attorneys, proctors and commissioners of oaths. Also present is a Banking Directory, Post Office Directory and a Directory for Conveyances, which includes rails, carriage and mails.

The bulk of the Post Office Dublin Directory is taken-up with the sections wholly treating on the City and Suburban areas of Dublin. Beginning with the directory, lists of all of the civic, civil, religious and educational establishments to be found throughout greater Dublin, there follows the extremely useful and valuable Dublin Street Directory. Identical to that published by Thom's in its Irish Almanac, this is a street-by-street directory of the city of Dublin, detailing each occupant or business together with the rateable valuation of the address. This section of the Post Office Dublin Directory contains some 150 printed pages listing tens of thousands of the city's residents and businesses.

The County Dublin Directory contains topographical and statistical information on the chief towns and suburbs lying outside of the metropolis. Beginning with Artane and Donneycarney and ending with Williamstown, this provides the names and addresses of many of the chief residents and trades people in a total of 53 suburban towns and villages. In the case of some of the larger suburban areas such as Rathmines, Kingstown and Bray street directories are also provided. The Post Office Dublin Directory is concluded with a list of the nobility, gentry, merchants and traders in the city of Dublin and its vicinity as well an alphabetical trades' directory, for many contemporary readers the most pertinent and read sections of any useful directory. These two sections alone constitute some 200-pages. The Post Office Dublin Directory for 1858 is concluded with an alphabetical list of advertisers that appear throughout the publication.

Republished on full-searchable CD-Rom the Post Office Dublin Directory must be one of the most useful directories for any Irish genealogist or family historian for period that the publication treats and is not to be missed.

Thom's Irish Almanac and Official Directory of Ireland, 1868 Thom's Irish Almanac and Official Directory of Ireland, 1868

Ref: IE0092
ISBN: 1-84630-275-7

First published in 1844 by Alexander Thom & Co., Thom's Irish Almanac & Directory, is still being published and is rightly seen as the pre-eminent directory and almanac for Ireland. When it was first issued in 1844 Thom's contained less than 1,000 printed pages; by the time of this 1868 issue the Directory contained more than nearly 2,000 printed pages, which are released here on fully-searchable CD-Rom.

The development of and deviations of the title of Thom's publication was in many respects driven by the changes and additions to its contents. Although primarily and rightly seen as an Irish directory and almanac, more than 600 initial pages are given over to a multitude of separate directories pertaining to the United Kingdom and its dominions and the breadth of these multifarious directories are given on this editions title page, which reads as follows: Thom's Official Directory of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland for the Year 1868. Comprising British, Foreign and Colonial Directories. Parliamentary Directory. Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage Directory. Naval and Military Directory. Statistics of Great Britain and Ireland. Government Offices' Directory. University, Scientific and Medical Directory. Law Directory. Ecclesiastical Directory. Banking Directory. Postal Directory. County and Borough Directory. Lieutenancy and Magistracy of Ireland. Post Office Dublin City and County Directory. In essence, this edition records the details of all the functionaries of state and government, military, civil and religious, from the Queen down to the clerks in the stationary office.

More than half of the 2,000 printed pages of Thom's Official Directory are given over to Ireland. Beginning with statistics for the country as a whole taken from the 1861 Census of Ireland, the Official Directory also provides county-by-county details on Irish landowners of 1,000 acres and upwards and 10,000 acres and upwards, with a further 300 pages or so detailing the multitude of state functionaries as well as the civil, religious, financial and military officers in the country. This includes all the incumbents of the various parishes and benefices in Ireland, all army and navy officers, barrister and solicitors, doctors and physicians, all educational and medical institutions and members of their governing bodies and even the clubs and private institutions, such as learned and academic societies and members of their respective councils.

The County Directory of Ireland provides statistical information on each county derived predominantly from the 1851 and 1861 Population Censuses of Ireland as well as the names of all the civil functionaries of the counties ranging from the deputy lieutenant down to local magistrates, the places and dates of county fairs, poor law unions, petty sessions and polling stations and this section is complete by the Borough Directory, which provides similar information for the municipal Boroughs and Towns of Ireland.

More than 700 pages of the 1868 edition of Thom's Official Directory is given over to Dublin City and its suburbs and as one would expect the level of detail provided in these sections far exceeds that given for the rest of Ireland. For the capital itself a comprehensive street directory is provided, which extends to the various townships and suburbs of the city such as Rathmines, Pembroke and Kingstown as well as the residents of many of the larger villages, which at this time had not been incorporated into the city. In addition, Thom's provides a list of the Dublin City and county nobility, gentry, merchants and traders as well as a trades directory and it is to the street and trades directories that most people are drawn to in search of their Dublin ancestors. The edition is completed with the Annals of Dublin, detailing important events in the city from the year 140 AD down to December 1867 and some 80 paged of advertisements.

Republished here on fully-searchable CD-Rom, it is a must for every Irish genealogist.

Published from 1844 until the present day, Thom's Irish Almanac is rightly considered the pre-eminent almanac for Ireland, but the massive scope of this annual publication is sometimes forgotton or overlooked. A glance at the subtitle title for this publication gives an indication as to the depth and breadth of the information contained therein: Comprising British, Foreign and Colonial Directories. Parliamentary Directory. Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage Directory. Statistics of Great Britain and Ireland. Government Offices Directory. University, Scientific and Medical Directory. Law Directory. Ecclesiastical Directory. Banking Directory. Lieutenancy and Magistracy of Ireland. Post Office Dublin City and County Directory.

In total this publication contains over 1800 pages of statistical and residential information, which does not include the general index that requires some 30 pages and 50 pages of advertisements at the end of the edition. Although Thom's Irish Almanac is rightly seen as an Irish directory it is often overlooked that a third of the almanac is given over to Great Britain. This details all members of parliament, state functionaries, officers in the army and navy, Peerage and Baronetage and county officials and even provides obituaries for noted persoanges who died in 1879.

However, as an almanac and directory the detail provided by Thom's on Ireland is unsurpassed as both a county and Dublin directory and nationwide almanac. Some 700 pages in 1880 edition are given over to the the multitude of state functionaries, civil, religious, financial and military. This includes all the incumbents of the various parishes and benefices in Ireland, all army and navy officers, barrister and solicitors, doctors and physicians, all educational and medical institutions and members of their governing bodies and even the clubs and private institutions, such as learned and academic societies and members of their respective councils.

County by county, the alamanac and directory provides statistical information on each county derived from the 1841, 1851, 1861 and 1871 Population Censuses as well as the names of all the civil functionaries ranging from the deputy lieutenant of the county down to local magistrates, the places and dates of county fairs, poor law unions, petty sessions and polling stations.

The level of detail provided in the directory and almanac increases greatly once the directory reaches Dublin City and county. A third of the publication is given over to the country's capital and its immediate environs. For the capital itself a street directory is provided and this extends to the various townships such as Rathmines, Pembroke and Kingstown as well as the residents of many of the larger villages, which at this time had not been incorporated into the city. In addition, Thom's provides a list of the Dublin City and county nobility, gentry, merchants and traders as well as a trades directory and it is to the street and trades directories that most people are drawn to in search of their Dublin ancestors.

Republished here in fully-searchable digital format, at least one edition of Thom's Directory and Almanac is a must for every household.

In essence, this edition records the details of all the functionaries of state and government, military, civil and religious, from the Queen down to the clerks in the stationary office.

More than two-third of the printed pages of this edition of Thom's Official Directory are given over to Ireland. Beginning with statistics for the country as a whole taken from the 1901 Census of Ireland, the Official Directory also provides county-by-county details on Irish landowners of 1,000 acres and upwards and 10,000 acres and upwards, with a further detailing the multitude of state functionaries, civil, religious, financial and military. This includes all the incumbents of the various parishes and benefices in Ireland, all army and navy officers, barrister and solicitors, doctors and physicians, all educational and medical institutions and members of their governing bodies and even the clubs and private institutions, such as learned and academic societies and members of their respective councils.

The County Directory of Ireland provides statistical information on each county derived from the 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901 Censuses of Ireland as well as the names of all the civil functionaries of the counties ranging from the deputy lieutenant down to local magistrates, the places and dates of county fairs, poor law unions, petty sessions and polling stations and this section is complete by the Borough Directory, which provides similar information for the municipal Boroughs and Towns of Ireland.

The vast majority of the 1909 edition of Thom's Official Directory is given over to Dublin County the City and its suburbs and as one would expect the level of detail provided in these sections far exceeds the that given for the rest of Ireland. For the capital itself a comprehensive street directory is provided , which extends to the various townships and suburbs of the city such as Rathmines, Pembroke and Kingstown as well as the residents of many of the larger villages, which at this time had not been incorporated into the city. In addition, Thom's provides a list of the Dublin City and county nobility, gentry, merchants and traders as well as a trades directory and it is to the street and trades directories that most people are drawn to in search of their Dublin ancestors. This edition is concluded with the Annals of Dublin, recording important events in the history of the city from the year 140 AD until November 1908 and some seventy pages of advertisements.

First published in 1843 by Alexander Thom & Co., Thom's Irish Almanac & Directory, is still being published and is rightly seen as the pre-eminent directory and almanac for Ireland. When it was first issued in 1843 Thom's contained some 1,000 printed pages; by the time of this 1910 issue the Directory contained nearly 2,500 printed pages, which are released here on fully-searchable CD-Rom.

The development of and deviations of the title of Thom's publication was in many respects driven by the changes and additions to its contents. Although primarily and rightly seen as an Irish directory and almanac, more than 600 of this edition's initial pages are given over to a multitude of separate directories pertaining to the United Kingdom and its dominions and the breadth of these multifarious directories are given on this editions title page, which reads as follows: Thom's Official Directory of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland for the Year 1910.
