INDEX of SURNAMES of HOUSEHOLDERS
ed. Richard J.Hayes, Edward Keane; National Library of Ireland.
Typescript lists of surnames of householders and occupiers of land and buildings in Ireland in the 19th Century; as recorded in the Tithe Applotment Books or TABs, and in the Griffith Valuation. The Griffith fiche indexes A-IH and AJM are alphabetical full name indexes to the Griffith Valuation records only, and do not include entries in the TABs; some are available in the National Archives.
County Roscommon was published in 1965. Griffith covers 1852-58. TABs covers 1824-53.
Although the range of dates extends over the period 1848-64, most Griffith Valuations date to the 1850s; and they cover roughly 70-80 per cent of the occupiers of property in Ireland.
The published valuation records are available on paper and in microfiche format. The dates of the Tithe Applotment Books or TABs depend on the parishes. The range of dates extends over the period 1803-62. However, most of them date to the 1820s and 1830s.
