Research Notes:  The Upperchurch CP Tithe Applotments were transcribed from the FHL film #0256698 by Pat Connors.  This was a complicated group titled, "Upperchurch Civil Parish'.  First of all, there were two copies of the tithes for the parish.  The first looked like a rough copy with cross outs and notes, much like what the Griffith Valuation House Books look like.  The 2nd copy was the cleaned up version of the first with a neater but different handwriting.  Both were dated 1829.

Another part of the group included a number of pages from the tithe book titled, 'Knockaboulagh Commons'.  This is not a townland name found in the 1851 Townland Index book or in the Griffith's Valuation.  It included three townlands:  Knockewoula Commons, Knockellengough Commons and Knockatoura.  Only the last is listed in the index  and the GV as Knockatoora Commons.  It should also be noted that these townlands are also included the Upperchurch Civil Parish tithes.  The only date on the Knockaboulagh Commons group was 1849 which is late for the tithes and maybe the time they were certified.

The film was mostly in good condition and the handwriting was not too bad but it was old fashioned and there could be mistakes in the transcription, therefore, use this as a guide not as a source.  Plus, this is only an index of the names and townlands.  There is more information offered that is not listed.  Please check the film for verification.

Also note, the townlands in the transcription are spelled as written.  You can check the 1851 Townland Index correct spellings at:
