An Index of Surnames of Householders In
Griffith’s Primary Valuation And Tithe Applotment Books
National Library of Ireland, 1962
This index is a list of the surnames of all the
persons given in Griffith’s Primary Valuation and in the Tithe
Applotment books. The volumes cover the period of approximately
1824-1860. There is a general alphabetical index for the whole
county and each civil parish is also indexed. In the case of the
Primary Valuation each occurrence of a name (where the person is
shown as occupier of a house) is recorded in order to establish the
number of householders in a parish or barony of a particular name.
The number is indicated by the figure after ‘G’ in the index.
Research Notes: In search of my family genealogy I have recorded the Surname Indexes surrounding the area of Tipperary Town where my O'Connor, Flanagan and Gilhooly families lived. Therefore, what is presented here, is my research notes and while all of the County Tipperary, Clanwilliam Barony is included, so are surrounding civil parishes, both in South and North Tipperary and in County Limerick.
Additionally: Searching should start first on the indexes, find the civil parish(es) and then go to the civil parish. There you will find the number of times the surname was mentioned in the Griffith's Valuation and whether the surname was in the tithes for the parish.
I am have the indexes online. I gradually getting the civil parish indexes also online. This will take awhile since I am on an extended trip both in Ireland and New York State. While in Ireland, my internet access was limited. Pat Connors, webmaster
