Strabane Manor comprises townlands in the parishes of Ardstraw, Camus, and Urney. The survey of Strabane Manor indicates the amount (acres) of each type of land (i.e., arable, heathy green and mishy pasture, bog, etc.) within each section with a commentary by the surveyor about usability in general. The current leaseholder (if any) and number of houses is usually indicated. Sometimes the surveyor added up the number of houses for multiple plots together rather than indicating a separate number of houses for each plot.
