Index of Deeds for County Carlow

1811 - 1820

Corporation Towns in the Co. of Carlow

Its important that you read the following instructions:

This is an Index to Memorials / Deeds relating to the town of CARLOW from 1811 – 1820.

The original Memorials can be found in two locations. On microfilm at a LDS Family History Centre near you or the Registry of Deeds, Henrietta Street, Dublin.

To order a film from the LDS Family History Centre you will find the LDS Film # which is relevant to your particular entry of interest at the end of the entry under LDS Film #.

The most import aspect of this index apart from the surnames is the BOOK #. Each film contains one or two books.
If you order the film number quoted with the entry then you should have the correct book. When the film arrives it will have one or two books on the film.

Find the book number quoted with the entry on the index and then look for the page number. The page will have in the left hand margin an entry with the Memorial #, the names the two parties in the INDEX and when the Memorial was registered with the Registry of Deeds. To the right of this and the main body of text will be a transcript of the Memorial.

The originals are stored in the basement of the Registry of Deeds. If you can’t find the Memorial on that page then look through the book for the Memorial # which is also quoted in the index.

Please bear in mind that the original Index Film is very hard to read and some page number and memorial numbers may be incorrect. I have endeavored to make sure the “Book Number” is correct as without the correct Book Number the exercise will be useless.

I suggest that once you have found the Memorial then you either take a digital image of the page or pages on the film. Another way is to take a scan from the Microfilm reader to the LDS computer if they are set up with that technology. I would do both if the scanner is available as sometimes you can read from the scanned image better than the digital camera images.

Having done both myself sometimes I could read the information on one image than the other. The actual images are relatively easy to read. I have attached an image of one as an example below:

Example of Brough Deed

Here is an example of a Memorial from 1787:
