Poor list in Killinick, Co. Wexford in 1813-20

Share it
Small Sources 10:  This is a list of payments made by the Church of Ireland to the poor  in the parish register of Killinick, Co. Wexford.  The list is in the Register of Killinick Parish which is in the National Archives of Ireland (ref M 5063). The lists are for Killinick and the neighbouring parishes of Maglass/Mayglass, St Iberius, and Kilmacree. The register covers the period 1804 to 1820, but irish-church-recordsthe poor list is for the years 1813, 1817 and 1820 only.  The register is somewhat eccentric in that the payments for 1813 are indicated on the right side;  payments (or notes)  for 1817 on the immediate right of the person’s name;  and the payments for 1820 on the left of the page.  See Figure 1 below for an examples. The clerk was clearly making the most of the space available.   The payments range from 10 shillings  to  1 shilling  and 8 pence for each person. The years in which payments are made is indicated in the list below – e.g. (1817, 1820) means that payments were made in both of these years. Other notes are also indicated with the date.  Note that some of these recipients were probably Catholic as the Church of Ireland commonly assisted all poor in the parish.
