Rev Archdeacon Kenny’s “Strange Labourers", Tithes, Kilmanaheen parish

Post by Sduddy » Thu Mar 14, 2024 12:45 pm

Mary Considine, one of the contributors to the topic “Tithe Applotment Books Webpage at National Archives” ... n&start=15 (see page 2 of the topic), mentions that there are some pages in the tithe applotment books for Kimanaheen parish listing ‘Strange Labourers’. I was intrigued by this and found some of the pages concerned. This, I think, may be the first of those pages: :https://titheapplotmentbooks.nationalar ... _00315.pdf
Leets Directory 1814 for Co. Clare gives the occupier of Mill-Mount, Ennistymon, as Rev. Archibald* J. Kenny. Otherwise I would not be able to say who the employer of the “strange labourers” was: ... s_1814.htm.

* Margaret Gallery, who donated the family history of The Kenny Family of Treanmanagh, ( ... 0_1800.htm), believes “Archibald” should be “Archdeacon”.

Here is my transcription of the first page (the page number is not clear):
