Note:- The foregoing has followed the same pattern, as with all of my other research findings,in respect of the variations in the spelling of the Mahady name.I have recorded each and every name, as each was found,from the various record sheets which were held at the Brisbane National Library and with each being a true copy of the original recordings, without any form of alteration nor correction to such records. The original photocopied sheets,covering each of the areas above, have been retained and are available for gaining any further details, such as the names of the lessor or major landowner,leasing of such land etc. to members of the Mahady Clan, together with, if required, the actual areas of land involved and the annual rates or rent charged.

Kindest regards,
Matt Mahady, (Typed on Computer on 30th. May 1997)
The End.

A basic explanation of the Tithe Applotment
Tithe books were compiled by Civil Parish in the Period 1823 till 1844 and they list all tenants who paid tithe,which was a tax based on the size and quality of a tenant's farm,and also determined by the average price of corn over the preceding seven years,to the Established Church of Ireland.

The Tithe Books,unfortunately,only identify the heads of rural households.They give no family details,as they merely list the heads of households,together with the size of their farm,plus their townland location.Their coverage,naturally enough,does not extend into the towns and cities of Ireland,but trade and street directories can make up for this this gap.

Owing to the destruction of many Census Returns of this period, the Tithe Books can provide us with an invaluable insight into rural Ireland before the famine.

---------

A very basic explanation of The Griffith's Valuation

Completed between 1848 and 1864,the Grif.Val.was a survey which was carried out to determine the the amount of tax each person should pay towards the support of the poor within their own Poor Law Union. This comprehensive survey recorded every person who held any form of property,be it house,land (including bogs),or office (office in this instance meaning any additional property such as outbuildings,barns etc.).

Generally,the records held in various repositories,such as the National Library of Ireland,include an Index List which contain the information covering both the Grif.Val. & Tithe Applotment, as per the sample below for Co. Longford:-

Mahady      T   Ardagh
Mahady  G2  T   Shrule
Mahady  G       Granard
Mahedy  G8  T   Ardagh

Key to Index:- G = Griffith's Valuation
               2 = Number of households of this name.
               T = Registered in Tithe Book
