The purpose of this blog article is to inform our readers of updates in the Irish Deeds section on Arborealis. At the time of writing, the sub-sections include:
- Irish deeds: indexes and selected transcripts, 1708–1943 — an introduction to the section, including:
- Duties of the Irish tenant farmer :: “one fatt Unshorne Mutton” — blog article, dated 14 Aug 2016.
- “for the considerations therein mentioned;” or, What a Memorial of an Indented Deed is, and what it isn’t. — blog article, dated 18 Aug 2016.
- Irish statutes for the registration of Irish deeds (pub. 1869) — detailed description of the requirements for registering memorials (handwritten copies) of deeds from the time the first statute was enacted in 1708, and reciting changes effected to the date of publication.
- Legal terms used in deeds and in other legal proceedings — drawing on contemporary 18th and 19th century legal dictionaries.
- Selected transcripts of memorials of Irish deeds — sorted chronologically by date of execution. An ongoing project.
- Surname index for selected memorials of Irish deeds — containing surname index entries for those memorials which have been submitted by Alison Kilpatrick to Nick Reddan’s Registry of Deeds Index Project Ireland website. My research focus is on the Barony of Dungannon in county Tyrone. However, memorials for other counties have also been indexed and are included in this series of indexes. Ongoing projects.
