In 1796, in order to encourage the growing Irish linen industry, the government offered free spinning wheels nationwide as a subsidy to flax growers who planted 1/4 acre or more that spring. The list recorded the names and town of each person, as well as the number of spinning wheels received (one per 1/4 acre). The list is known either as the "Flax Growers List" or as the "Spinning Wheel Premium Entitlements List".
Townland spellings are shown as they were found in the records.
