Tenants of the Barton Estate, Fethard, Co. Tipperary 1775-1805.

Small Sources 36:     This is a list of 183 tenants from the index to a rental of the Barton Estate in Tipperary. The original document is in the National Library of Ireland and contains “Rent ledgers of the estate of William Barton in Co Tipperary, 1775-1782; 1796 – 1805. NLI, Ms. 5875.” The rental does not give specific locations for the tenants, but most appear to be in the town of Fethard and the surrounding parishes. A few are indicated as being resident elsewhere. Thomas Barton bought the estate at Fethard, county Tipperary, in 1751 and the family kept possession until the 1950s.  Thomas  was a member of the Barton family of Fermanagh and in the 1720s he established a wine business in Bordeaux, France, which still exists as Barton & Guestier.  Thomas Barton was Member of the British Parliament for Fethard until 1800.  His estate in Tipperary was in the parish of Fethard (barony of Middlethird) and in the neighbouring parishes of Baptistgrange, Barrettsgrange, Coolmundry, Peppardstown, Rathcool and Redcity.   The Barton residence was at Grove House near Fethard.

It may be useful to know that, due to the way in which the rental is completed, the earlier names within each alphabetical list will be tenants from earlier in the rental period 1775-1805. Within the ‘B’ list, for instance, Widow Bacon was an early tenant, whereas Thomas Bourk was one of the later tenants registered. Many of these are prominent people and several are listed as freeholders of other properties in Tipperary in a 1776 list of Freeholders.   Note also that several are listed as ‘Esq.’  meaning Esquire, which was historically used as a title of respect to men of  higher social rank, e.g.  the landed gentry above the rank of gentleman. The earliest commercial directory for Fethard town is Slater’s Commercial Directory of Munster, published in 1846.  As this is 40-70 years after the time period of this  record, it is not surprising that few of the names listed here still occur. Exceptions are Henry Seyres (who is listed as a land agent), Matthew Jacob ( a local Magistrate) and Hugh Massey (also a magistrate). These may also be successors with the same names.

Name abbreviations are listed as found and include Michl. = Michael; Jno = John; Wm. = William; Nichs = Nicholas; Edwd. = Edward; Edmd. = Edmund; Hamn. = Hamilton etc. Ancestor Network will offer 1 free hour of research by a professional researcher to conduct further research on these individuals or others in these estate papers.
