Site or database name: Tithe Applotment Books of Ireland, 1823-1838 International Land Records

Description: The Tithe Applotment Books are so called because the information was originally compiled in nearly 2,000 hand-written volumes. This data set references the counties that make up present-day Northern Ireland: Counties Antrim, Armagh, Derry, Down, Fermanagh, and Tyrone. In the original enumeration, each landholder was recorded along with details about their holdings such as size, land quality and types of crops. The amount of tithe payable by each landholder was based on all of these factors and calculated by a formula using the average price of wheat and oats from 1816-23.
