Griffiths Valuation Index - By Last Name
County Kilkenny, Ireland
Griffiths Primary Valuation of Rateable Property in Ireland is
commonly known as Griffith's Valuation. The valuable sidekick to this
edition is The Householder's Index to Griffith's Valuation. Between 1849
and 1850 the land in County Kilkenny was surveyed, under the direction of
Richard Griffith, for the purpose of establishing the level of rates
(local tax) payable by each landholder or leaseholder. The Griffith
Valuation lists a majority of land--holders or house-holders in the county giving the
townland and description of the property (e.g. land; house; land and
house; or house, outoffices/out buildings, and land). It also lists the
landlord and the annual valuation. Because of the shortage of other
records this is a very important 'census substitute', even though it
does not list the age of the landholder or names of family members.
