Notes

Microfilm of original records at Ministry of Justice, Registry of Deeds, Dublin.

A memorial in legal terms was the preservation or recording of an event, and specifically an abstract of the particulars of a deed for registration. A conveyance was a document relating to the transfer of property.

Includes an index to grantors and an index to lands (townland or address) by county. There is no index to grantees. Up to 1833 the Grantor index does not give the address or townland involved. It shows only the surname and first name of the grantor, followed by the surname of the first grantee, then the volume, page and deed number required to find the record. After 1833 the Grantor index adds the county in which the lands were situated. The Land index groups townlands together under their first letter only. After 1828 the Land index is further divided by barony, so it is necessary to know the barony in which the townland was located. Cities and corporation towns have separate indexes arranged by street or vicinity. Corporation towns (incorporated towns) are: Antrim, Ardee, Ramagh, Askeaton, Athboy, Athenry, Athlone, Athy, Augher, Ballyshannon, Birr, Bandon, Callan, Carlingford, Carlow, Carrickfergus, Carrick-on-Shannon, Carrick-on-Suir, Cashel, Castlebar, Cavan, Clogher, Clonmel, Coleraine, Downpatrick, Duleek, Dundalk, Dungannon, Dungarvan, Ennis, Enniscorthy, Enniskillen, Galway, Gowran, Granard, Hillsborough, Jamestown, Johnstown, Kells, Kildare, Kilmallock, Kinsale, Lanesborough, Leighlin Old, Lisburn, Longford, Maryborough, Monaghan, Mallow, Mullingar, Naas, Navan, Newry, Newtownlimavady, Philipstown, Portarlington, Ratoath, Roscommon, Ross, Sligo, Strabane, Tallow, Thomastown, Tralee, Trim, Wexford, Wicklow, Youghal.
