Inhabitants & neighbours found in memorials of Irish deeds

Home > Records > Irish Deeds > Subject Index > Inhabitants and neighbours

This page on Arborealis lists those memorials of Irish deeds which contain lists of inhabitants and neighbours within a townland or parish. While a lessee was often already an occupant when he or she was granted a lease, occasionally such deeds listed several occupants and neighbours. Not only do we get a sense of the immediate members of a small community, but during the early years when the Penal Laws reigned, we can also find some Irish names in such lists. Many of the memorials in this index pertain to the Barony of Dungannon in county Tyrone. However, some memorials have also been indexed or transcribed for other counties, such as Armagh and Monaghan.
