|Books of Survey and Distribution|
Patrick Kissane contributes information about the Books of Distribution and Survey and a transcription of the Survey for Kilcummin, presented in the table below.
Read about The Books of Survey and Distribution.
The Survey states it is for the parish of Kilcomin. The present-day name is probably Kilcummin. But the areas mentioned are not in the present-day parish of Kilcummin. Rather they are mainly in Rathmore to the east of Killarney town. These lands would probably have been owned by the O' Donoghue of the Glen branch of the O' Donoghue clan.
The Nicholas Browne mentioned was Sir Valentine Browne’s son and heir.
The records below are shown in six columns. Measurements are by acres, roods and perches. Some names have changed since the book was written. Where able to confirm a name or location, it is listed in brackets after the 17th century name. However some of the names mentioned are no longer in use and have no present-day equivalents.
