Griffiths Primary Valuation

This was a survey of property occupiers in Ireland made between 1848 and1864 and it's importance lies in the fact that it lists almost every head of household for each county.
This valuation records every landowner and householder in Ireland in a period shortly after the famine.

An Act was passed in 1826 that allowed for a uniform valuation of property in all Ireland in order to levy the county cess charges and grand Jury Rates. Thus began an assessment of the whole country, county by county by Sir Richard Griffith. Amendments were passed to the 1826 Act, the first in 1831 excluded those houses under the annual valuation of £3, another in 1836 excluded houses under £5.

The information given in the Griffiths is-

*The townland address and householders name
*the name of the person from whom the property is leased
*a description of the property; the acreage and the valuation.

Many people refer to the Griffiths CD, which is handy enough to track a surname through the country, or to find some places in counties where the name occurs. However, this CD is simply an index of names, with townland names for the county. It does however, help to locate vicinities where surnames are concentrated
There is an index to the surnames listed in Griffiths Valuation, that is known as the 'Householder's Index'. This is made up by county, divided into baronies, parishes, townlands and has been filmed by the LDS.

The Householders Index with their LDS- film numbers: Tyrone, Waterford, Westmeath, Wexford, Wicklow LDS film # 0919007.

For the 6 counties of Northern Ireland, Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry (Derry) and Tyrone the cancelled book are held at PRONI in Belfast.
