Tithe Applotment Books in Clones Parish
The Tithe Applotment Books in Clones parish and throughout the entire country record the results of a unique land survey taken to determine the amount of tax payable by landholders to the Church of Ireland. They are known as the Tithe Applotment Books because the results of this land survey were originally compiled in nearly 2,000 hand-written books. This data set represents a virtual census for pre-Famine Ireland and as it covered most of the country it is very important for historians and genealogists researching family origins or the history of specific areas.
The Tithe Applotments created a lot of civil unrest in Ireland especially from the Catholic population as they vigorously disagreed to paying taxes to a Protestant church. The parish of Clones is situated in both county Fermanagh as well as county Cavan and the Tithe Applotment books for the population of the parish are recorded under county Cavan
