by Samuel Lewis
Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of Ireland is the first detailed study of its kind for Ireland. It was published in 1837, before the Famine (1845-50), so it is very important for historians and genealogists of the early nineteenth century. Lewis gives details about every parish, town and village in Ireland, including numbers of inhabitants, the economy, history, topography, religion and parish structures, administration and courts, schools, and much more. He also gives the names of the principal inhabitants (generally landlords, merchants and professionals). This Dictionary is in four parts: ·Preface & Subscribers ·Volume 1: A-G ·Volume 2: H-Z ·Volume 3: Maps The Maps are in full colour, making this source one of the most important for research on Ireland. The copy used for this publication was formerly owned by one of Ireland's best known genealogists, Brian Cantwell.
anything pre 1800 or pre 1750??
Thank you for the question. We have a few things that are pre1800 and we will be adding a lot more content and new publications very soon. If you want to contact me directly at email@example.com and let me know a little more about what areas you are interested in, I may be able to point you in the right direction or let you know what is in the pipeline.
