Our family lived at House 23 Drungcalpin, Co Cavan according to the 1821 census. Is there a way of finding exactly where that was? Going to Ireland on the 12 September 2022 to mark the 200 anniversary of our family immigrating to Canada.

The current spelling of that townland is Drumcalpin. The numbers assigned to houses in all the 19th century censuses were random. The constable who came into the townland numbered the first house he visited as house 1, the second house house 2 etc. Have you located your family in the 1855 Griffiths Valuation or 1911 census?
