During the 1840s, Ireland suffered a massive famine. Many tenants died, and others emigrated, hoping to find relief. As a result, landlords lost their major source of income, and their estates went into debt, culminating in a high number of foreclosures. It is estimated that between the years 1850 and 1858 around 8,000 estate foreclosures were handled.

Record Description

During the 1840s, Ireland suffered a massive famine. Many tenants died, and others emigrated, hoping to find relief. As a result, landlords lost their major source of income, and their estates went into debt, culminating in a high number of foreclosures. It is estimated that between the years 1850 and 1858 around 8,000 estate foreclosures were handled.

In 1849, an act was passed which established the Encumbered Estates Court. This court handled the sale and accounting of bankrupted estates. In 1858, the Landed Estates Court was established. This court handled both unencumbered and encumbered estates.

These records were created to provide a detailed accounting of bankrupted estate sales. These records are generally reliable.

This collection covers records for the years 1850 to 1885.

These records consist of maps, which are hand-drawn, and tenant lists which are typed on preprinted forms. The records are divided by county and lot.

Record Content

Lot map records may contain the following information:

  • Estate owner and title
  • Parish
  • County
  • Surveyor’s name and address
  • Ordinance sheet number

Tenant list records may contain the following information:

  • Tenant’s full name
  • Number on the map
  • Quantity of land
  • Irish plantation rents
  • Annual rent
  • Gale days (the day on which rent is due)

How to Use the Records
