Small Sources 17. This document lists tenants of 57 holdings on the estates of Hon. Francis A. Prittie during March and May 1826. It lists 71 names as several are in joint tenancies. It indicates the townland, rent and arrears for each. Only the rent amount is shown here as an indication of the holding size. The list is among the ”Dunalley Papers, of the Prittie family Lords Dunalley, 1665-1937” in the National Library of Ireland; NLI Ms 29,808 (2). The holdings appear to be in 2 counties. Loughan or Loughane is in the Parish of Finglas, Co. Offaly close to the Prittie family home at Corville, which is just across the county border in Tipperary. Most of the remainder are in the area South of Nenagh, Co. Tipperary in the Civil parishes of Kilnaneave, Dolla and Ballynaclogh. Ballyandrew, which is the location of 19 tenancies, could not be found. There are townlands called Ballyandrew in Cork and Wexford. However, this property would appear to be in Tipperary, based on the family names. Does anyone have suggestions (noting that it might not be the name of a townland)? Read More

Small Sources 16: This list is of 26 persons who purchased flax seed from the Monteagle estate in the Shanagolden area of county Limerick in 1808. It is from the correspondence of Stephen Edward Rice and the original is in the National Library of Ireland (NLI Ms 605A). The heading on the list states that 124 pottles of flax seed were sold at 1 shilling 7 pence halfpenny per pottle on 15th May 1808. Read More
Small Sources 14: This list of small farmers is derived from 2 documents in Ms. 8344 in the National Library of Ireland, entitled “Rent ledger of lands in Co. Tipperary the property of the Maunsell (?) family, 1848”. Despite the title, the properties are in the townland of Carrig Beg (403 acres; spelt Carraghbeg in the document) which is in the Parish of Castletown, Co. Limerick. A map and further information is here. It is on the Tipperary border and in the Poor Law Union of Tipperary. The two source documents are (a) a rental with a list of 22 tenants, and (b) a separate letter from Michael Ryan (presumably the land-agent) to the landlord detailing the “..number of acres in tillage and meadowing in Castletown” dated Oct. 24 1849. The latter document contains almost all of the same persons as the rental, but the final three on the list below are additional to the rental list and may have taken up tenancies in the interim. The file also contains rent receipts which clearly show the location of the properties as being Carrig Beg.
