Tenants of Prittie Estate, Tipperary & Offaly 1826.

Share it

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; NLIMs 29,808 (2).

The property locations listed are all townlands,  which are the smallest divisions of land in Ireland.  They are of ancient origin and hugely variable in size and shape.  Further information on townlands is in our blog ‘Know your place“.  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. This may be a sub-townland, which is a locally-used denomination for a part of a large townland.

Many of the names listed are very typical of Tipperary and Offaly  (Ryan, Kennedy, Maher, Mara or O’Meara,  Burke, Tracy) Further information on some of the families listed may be included in our publication ‘Sources for Irish Family History 2021‘ which lists books and articles on over 2,500 Irish families.    Ancestor Network also  publish
