Notes for Agnes Henrietta Alicia Somerville Townsend

The April 1901 Irish Census shows Agnes living at house 3 'Corravoley', Kilcoe, Co Cork, with her mother as head of the family, her sister, Helen Lodge, three 'Lodge' grandchildren and three domestic staff. The house consisted of eleven rooms, a stable, a coach house and four further outbuildings. This property passed to Agnes when her mother died in 1904 and this is reflected in the 1911 Irish Census though it differs in the description of the house. It records that Henrietta was a farmer, aged 51, living at 'Corravoley' with her brother-in-law Joseph Lodge, her niece, Eleanor Murphy (1), and two domestic staff. The house is shown as consisting of nine rooms with a stable and seven further outbuildings!

The Postal Directory in Guy's City and County Cork Almanac and Directory for 1907 (page 458) and 1913 (page 258) both show Agnes living at Aghadown - "Townshend Miss A H Corovella" . Guy's Postal Directory for 1921, page 226 shows her still living there.
