Small Sources 47: This is a list of 94 tenants on the Trant estate in the area of Dovea in the Civil Parish of Loughmoe West, Co. Tipperary mainly in the period 1815-20. Some accounts continue into the 1830s. The rentals for these estates are included in the Trant Papers which are in the National Library of Ireland. This list is from an index to a rental found among these papers (NLI Ms. 1756). See our article here for a detailed account of rentals and their relevance. The index includes the names of all tenants and the page of the rental which contains their individual account. Each of these accounts provides basic details on the rent due and the payments made. It does not always specify the location of the holding. An example is below, which shows the account of Patrick Cleary and others in ‘part of Killaghra‘. Holdings by partnerships such as this are not uncommon. Note the account of Mary Bryan below, which shows that she was paid in guineas (£1 and 1 shilling) Some common abbreviations are used, including Thos. = Thomas; Wm. = William; Michl. = Michael; Edwd. = Edward; Patk = Patrick; Corns. = Cornelius; and Danl. = Daniel.
