ST GEORGE, Sir Richard St George Mansergh (maps and rent rolls of the estate of Sir Richard St George)
Descriptions and maps of farms and villages in Cork, Kilkenny, and Tipperary. Useful to local historians with an interest in that area.
Detailed usage description
The collection contains maps and rental information of estates owned by Sir Richard St George. Farms and villages are described and in several cases mapped to the level of individual fields. In a few cases tenants are also named, but unless you are very lucky this is unlikely to be useful as a family history resource.
This would be a useful resource for local historians wishing to find some contextualisng detail about farms in the counties of Cork, Kilkenny and Tipperary. The maps are very well drawn and detailed and therefore it shouldn't be difficult to match the estates described in this volume to modern landmarks.
