FROM AN ACCOUNT OF THE LANDS OF THE ARCHBISHOP OF ARMAGH FOR CO. TYRONE, BY THOMAS ASHE, 1703

Extracted from the enormous Archbishopric of Armagh Estate, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI), Belfast

The Archbishop of Armagh owned large tracts of land in Counties Tyrone, Londonderry, Armagh, Monaghan and Louth. With the exception of place names and personal names, spelling in this document has been modernised and punctuation has been inserted where it has been judged useful and relevant. Acreages are in Irish Plantation Measure [IPM]. One Irish acre equals 1.62 statute acres.

Pre1800 records comprise leases, rentals and surveys and a large collection of maps. Some records are in a fragile state and may be referred to using photocopies of the originals. The call numbers are catalogued DIO/4 passim

***A TRANSCRIPTION OF THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENT CONTAINING EARLY EIGHTEENTH CENTURY SPELLING FOLLOWS AT THE END OF THIS FILE***

Carranteele Tolls and Customs

The title sufficiently explains the nature of the grant, and how to put a value upon them I don’t know unless I had been at one of the fairs. No doubt Mr Stewart has a good bargain of them, however the profit must be uncertain as it is in all things of that kind and he must bear some charge to collect them.
