About: Tithe Applotment Books were compiled between 1823 and 1837 in an attempt to determine how much the holders of agricultural land over 1 acre should pay in taxes or tithes to the established Church of Ireland.

Some of the transcribed names of people and places are not 100% accurate, but the original entries may be viewed for clarification.
