About: This is a listing of around 1,500 names of people from the south west of County Wicklow. The list names those who signed a form of petition (also known as a memorial) in 1837. The purpose of the petition was to seek the relocation of the Court of Quarter Sessions for the Baronies of Shillelagh and Ballinacor South. At the time this court was held in Baltinglass and the petition proposed that it be established in Tinahely. The area covered by the listing includes the Fitzwilliam Estate of Coolattin. The information should be useful for people with South-West Wicklow ancestry as it bridges the period between the Tithe Applotmant Books and the publication of Griffith’s Valuation. This booklet is Number 1 in the series ‘Irish Genealogical Sources’.
