Tinnehinch Labourers 1828

The following names of workers on the Tinnehinch estate of James Grattan, were taken from the Workmen’s accounts book, 1828 (NLI MS 5516). As with the Powerscourt workmen’s accounts, daily activities are listed, and a sample daily activity is shown here. Interesting that it is a different set of names to those found around the Enniskerry area for Powerscourt. The Monck (Charleville) names will be an interesting comparison to both Powerscourt and Tinnehinch.

  1. I appear to be a progeny of Alexander Toole, albeit a couple of generations on… Excellent find… We Kelly’s and Tooles…
