Census of Ireland, often referred to as the 'Pender's Census', with number of English and Irish living
in each townland and principal Irish names in each barony. Edited by
Seamus Pender in 1939. Recorded the names of persons with title to land.
The number of people in County Armagh and in each Barony:
1766 Religious Census:
The largest religious census was conducted in 1766,
when each Church of Ireland minister was requested to provide a listing of
the members of each denomination in his parish. Although some were
completed as requested, many ministers provided only the details on Church
of Ireland parishioners, and omitted Catholics, Presbyterians, etc.
Others provided a complete survey of all local inhabitants, including
family names and the numbers of children in the household. In County
only the Householders of Parish of Creggan exists.
Tithe Applotments: A unique land survey taken as a way
to determine the amount of tax payable by landholders to the Church of
Ireland, the Tithe Applotment Books represent a virtual census for
pre-Famine Ireland. In the original enumeration, each landholder was
recorded along with details such as townland, size of holding, land
quality and types of crops. (parishes are civil parishes)
Civil Parish, 1840
House, Quarto, Tenure, Field & Miscellaneous Books: The vaulation of all property and agricultural land in Ireland was a process which took almost 50 years. The records which were generated in the carrying out of his work culminated in the published Valuation of Ireland whose popular name was that of the man, Richard Griffith, who personally organized and directed the whole effort (see above). The unpublished notebooks of the Valuers who performed their tasks under detailed instructions laid down by Griffith have, in most cases, survived and provide a considerable amount of supplementary information that is available in the published Valuation Books. These notebooks have been divided into the following categories: House, Quarto, Tenure, Field and Miscellaneous Books. Some of these notebooks contain information recorded 10 or 15 years before the published valuation. Such records, together with the Tithe Applotment Books, give rare and valuable insights into people and society in pre-famine Ireland.
Griffith's Valuation: The Griffith's Valuation
references individuals who occupied property in Ireland between 1848 and
1864. Since no Irish census of the nineteenth century has survived,
Griffith's Valuation is of extreme importance. Like the tithes, it lists
the head of household, townland and land information.
Registers: Include baptisms, marriages and death
records of the church.
