Lewis's Topographical Dictionary - Waterford County

40. Kill St. Nicholas
Kill St. Nicholas, a parish, in the barony of Gaultier, union and county of Waterford, and province of Munster, 5 miles (E) from Waterford, and on Waterford harbour; containing, with the town of Passage, 1743 inhabitants. It comprises 2884 statute acres, including a very small quantity of bog, and abundance of good building stone. The living is a rectory, in the diocese of Waterford, united episcopally in 1813 to the rectory of Faithlegg, and more recently to that of Crook, in the gift of the Crown: the tithe rent-charge of the parish is £156.9., and of the whole union £381.13. The church is at Passage and was lately repaired by a grant of £239 from the Ecclesiastical Commissioners.

There is a glebe of 22½ acres, but no glebe-house. In the Roman Catholic divisions the parish is the head of a district, comprises also the parishes of Faithlegg and Killea, and has a chapel at Passage. At Cross are some vitriolic springs.
