Tenants on the Powerscourt Estate, 1816

powerscourt townlands larger November mergedA map exists of the Powerscourt Estate from 1816. The names of the tenants accompanies the map. These are listed below. This is a first run of the analysis – it doesn’t distinguish very large tenancies from single plot holdings, but may be of use to those wishing to search family names. They are listed below by townland. You can see a map showing where each townland is by clicking on the image to the right.

Unfortunately because of a technical issue, data that was stored in tables in some parts of the website are lost. I am slowly working my way through this to try to update and bring information back online where I can.

  2. Great site Mike,
    I was hoping to see the list of tenants you mentioned on this page as “listed below” but there doesn’t appear to be anything listed. I was unable to locate anything on the map you’re referring to. Could you provide a bit more info on where it can be seen.

    • Dear Gerald,

      Sorry for delay. It seems the coding that lists the table has gone awry – I’ve probably deleted some line somewhere in ignorance! I will aim to dig out the original spreadsheet and pass it on.


  3. Michael. Am interested in the list of tenants on the Powerscourt Estate that doesn’t show up. Would love to see it. Where can i get hold of it? Many thanks. Alison Burton

  4. I am looking for information on John Kennedy who was a land agent at Powerscourt Estate. I believe that he lived in the townland of Demesne.

  5. I’m also very interested in this list. Also, if possible, has anyone come across Ballinacarriff as a placename in Powerscourt? I have found it in two records relating to my Hill ancestors from Kilmacanogue.
