Notes:

 

The aim of this page is to show how you can track the people living in a townland (and especially in the main clachan within that townland) through all the different land documents,

starting with the Abercorn Letters in 1769, through the TAB, House Books, GV, GVRBs, then censuses and the Ulster Covenant, right through to the people still living there today.

 

Please note that this is a very wide page - scroll to the right to view.

3.  The tenants whose plots met at the clachan in 1781 and 1836 are marked in bold - by the GV, two of these tenants did not live in the clachan.                                        
4.  The tenants below the table for 1781 and 1835 are in Tullyrap, which may be part of the clachan.
