Small Sources 8: Kerry Petitioners 1828
Carlow Tenants of the Knight of Kerry 1856


Posted by Jim Ryan on 5 November 2013

 The list below is of the County Carlow tenants of the LaTouche estate in Carlow. These tenants signed a letter (Sept 1856) to the Knight of Kerry, Peter Fitzgerald, requesting that he not sell the properties on which they were tenants. Peter Fitzgerald had apparently recently inherited the estate from Lt. Col. Latouche, who was his uncle. The letter, and a reply, are in the National Library of Ireland (Ms. 5948). The same file also includes photographs of six of these tenants (indicated below as P) but these are not associated with the letter. The signatories are not all big farmers analysis of Griffith Valuation shows that their holdings vary from 18 to 225 acres and they are located mainly in the Civil Parish of Dunleckney, Co. Carlow.

 The photo is of Terrence Byrne who held 76 acres in the townland of Ballywilliamroe. As usual, if you make a connection with anyone on this list, we would be interested to hear, and we can also share the other photos.
