Griffiths Valuation of Ireland - (ATHENRY, County Galway)


The Primary Valuation was the first full-scale valuation of property in Ireland. It is one of the most important surviving 19th century genealogical sources.

It was a survey of property occupiers in Ireland made between 1848 and 1864 and it's importance lies in the fact that it lists almost every head of household for each county.

This valuation records every landowner and householder in Ireland in a period shortly after the famine.

An Act was passed in 1826 that allowed for a uniform valuation of property in all Ireland in order to levy the county cess charges and grand Jury Rates. Thus began an assessment of the whole country, county by county by the Commissioner of Valuation, a Dublin geologist,  Sir Richard Griffith.
Amendments were passed to the 1826 Act, the first in 1831 excluded those houses under the annual valuation of £3, another in 1836 excluded houses under £5

The information given in the Griffiths is the following:
The townland address and householders name; the name of the person from whom the property is leased; a description of the property; the acreage and the valuation.
