Another small, useful & free source from Flyleaf Press

Jim Ryan of Flyleaf Press has published another of his very useful 'Small Sources', this time a list of more than 100 tenants of the Earl of Listowel in Kerry together with their rents due on 29 September 1755. Most of the tenants are recorded with their townland.

This is number 11 in the 'Small Sources' series, and it's free for all to access on the publisher's blog (click link above).

Although I've reported most of the earlier entries in the series, I seem to have missed number 10. This was a list of payments made in 1813, 1817 and 1820 to the poor in the neighbouring parishes of Killinick, Maglass/Mayglass, St Iberius and Kilmacree, all in Co Wexford. Although these are Church of Ireland parishes, some of the recipients may well have been Roman Catholic. See this Small Source here.
