I have created a listing of all the surnames/second names that I found in different genealogical resources that cover Paulstown. The geographical focus is the townlands of Paulstown, Kellymount, Shankill and Jordanstown, as these are the townlands I fell are closest to the village. The resources used are 1911 Census of Ireland, 1901 Census of Ireland, Bassett’s Kilkenny City and County Guide and Directory, Griffith’s Valuation and The Tithe Applotment Books.
In total there are 224 surname spelling variations. I have taken the spelling of the name as is from the source which leads to different spellings of the same name in different time periods, for example, Walsh/Walshe, Coady/Cody, Oneill/O Neill/O’Neill etc.. Be sure to check for all possible variations of the name you are looking for.
If you find that a name you have is not listed that does not mean your ancestors were not from Paulstown. This listing is only for the four townlands which I feel are closest to the village. People would have put Paulstown as their home town/village on various documents even if they lived a few miles from the actual village. Also, as with all the large listings I compile, mistakes are probably inevitable.
