Tenants renting land from Earl Fitzwilliam in the townland of Coolattin, County Wicklow Ireland. 1839.

Tenants renting land from Earl Fitzwilliam in the townland of Coolattin, County Wicklow Ireland. 1839.

Anne Burgess has been transcribing the 1839 Fitzwilliam rentals records, and putting them into a spreadsheet for each townland, hoping in that way to construct a sort of census substatute for 1839 in southwest Wicklow.

The head tenants, where there was no personal information given - only land acreage - have not been included, as these head tenants may have lived elsewhere. For instance, Earl Fitzwilliam appears several times on some pages as a head tenant.
