Griffiths Primary Valuation
This was a survey of property occupiers in Ireland made between 1848
and1864 and it's importance lies in the fact that it lists almost every
head of household for each county.
This valuation records every landowner and householder in Ireland in
a period shortly after the famine.
An Act was passed in 1826 that allowed for a uniform valuation of property
in all Ireland in order to levy the county cess charges and grand Jury
Rates. Thus began an assessment of the whole country, county by county
by Sir Richard Griffith. Amendments were passed to the 1826 Act, the
first in 1831 excluded those houses under the annual valuation of £3,
another in 1836 excluded houses under £5.
The information given in the Griffiths is-
*The townland address and householders name
*the name of the person from whom the property is leased
*a description of the property; the acreage and the valuation.
Many people refer to the Griffiths CD, which is handy enough to track
a surname through the country, or to find some places in counties where
the name occurs. However, this CD is simply an index of names, with
townland names for the county. It does however, help to locate vicinities
where surnames are concentrated
There is an index to the surnames listed in Griffiths Valuation, that
is known as the 'Householder's Index'. This is made up by county, divided
into baronies, parishes, townlands and has been filmed by the LDS.
