These 33 people were tenants of Thomas Lenegan in Pudding Lane, Thurles, Co. Tipperary in 1816/17. This is one of the main streets in the town but has since been renamed ‘O’Donovan Rossa Street’. It is unclear if the premises were residences or businesses. The list is among the Lenegan Estate papers in the National Library of Ireland (NLI Ms. 497). Lenegan had estates in Thurles, Co. Tipperary; Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny; and elsewhere.
The list below shows the tenant’s names and the yearly rent. The full list also shows the arrears due in November 1816. The names are listed as spelled, and with the abbreviations used, e.g. Jas. = James, Danl. = Daniel etc. One of the unusual names listed is Lanty Ryan. However, a Lant Ryan is listed as a householder in Thurles in the Griffith Valuation (~1848), although on a different street. The illustrations show a section of the original rental (above) and the Rental title (at end).
