Leet's Directory (2nd ed., 1814) Leet's Directory (2nd ed., 1814)

The closing decades of the eighteenth century witnessed considerable improvements in the quality of the communications infrastructure in Ireland, and consequent increases in economic activity and trade. These developments and improvements enhanced the demand for directories, travel guides and topographical accounts. To meet this demand, new road atlases and descriptive accounts began to appear. Notable among these were the Maps of the roads of Ireland by George Taylor and Andrew Skinner, William Wilson's Post-chaise companion and James Solas Dodd's Topographical director through Ireland, versions of each of which are available from us.

Ambrose Leet's Directory to the market towns, villages and gentlemen's seats and other noted places in Ireland was one of the first nineteenth century Irish directories to appear in print, and provides alternative information and additional details to that presented in the various earlier publications. Leet's directory was compiled under the authority of the General Post Office, for the purpose of encouraging trade, communications and 'public correspondence'. First published in 1812, a second edition, with corrections and additions, appeared in 1814. It is the second, corrected, edition that has been published here.

This is an impressive publication of more than 450 pages, and is packed with vital information for the historian and genealogist, researching early nineteenth-century Ireland. The information is presented in convenient, columnar fashion, listing, in alphabetical order, the names of approximately 20,000 locations throughout Ireland, including towns, villages, estates and gentlemen's seats. For each location, the county in which it is situated and the nearest post town is listed, but additional information is also provided, which varies, depending on the character of the particular location.

Villages and market towns are conveniently noted, and in many case, the ecclesiastical diocese is also recorded. Researchers interested in identifying the distribution of estate houses and gentleman's seats will be pleased to see that these are particularly well covered by Leet, with the then proprietor of each listed seat recorded. A detailed index of persons' names is also provided.

Since the publication was undertaken under the authority of the Post Office, it concludes with a listing of postage rates from all post towns to Dublin, and from the principal postage ports (Dublin, Waterford and Donaghadee) to Britain, Europe and the Empire.

The alphabetical presentation of the information makes this an easy source to use. For the added convenience of users, this version of Leet's directory, like most of our CDs, is fully searchable. Consequently, it is strongly recommended to researchers as an important research tool, either in its own right, or as a convenient complement to the various other directories and topographical accounts available from Eneclann.

Farrar's Index to Irish Marriages 1771-1812 Farrar's Index to Irish Marriages 1771-1812

Ref: IET0038
ISBN: 1-84630-060-6

This index by Henry Farrar, published in two volumes in 1897, details all the marriage entries in Walker's Hibernian Magazine 1771-1812. There are over 12,000 marriages recorded from a time when few other records of this nature survive. As a consequence it is of exceptional genealogical value, recording the names, addresses and some occupations of the couples, and often the names and details of their parents (principally the fathers of the brides). The dates and places of marriage are also recorded, and occasionally a lot of additional detail for selected marriages. We estimate that around 20,000 names are included in this source. The two volumes also include an Appendix by Sir Arthur Vicars of the births, deaths and marriages recorded in the short-lived magazine Anthologia Hibernica 1793-94. There are around 1,350 records in this section. In total we estimate that the books contain over 22,000 names across 547 pages.

The majority of the information is derived from "The Hibernian magazine: or compendium of entertaining knowledge", a monthly magazine established in 1771 until it ceased in 1812. It was the main general Dublin journal for this period and covered many topics, from news and current affairs to fashion and the arts. As a consequence it was the main publication for the announcement of marriages.

This publication was the first full medical directory of Ireland, published in 1852. It includes all medical practitioners who held a qualification, either as an apothecary (pharmacist) or a medical doctor throughout Ireland. There are several thousand names recorded, reflecting the huge growth in the Irish medical profession following the establishment of the dispensaries across the country with the Poor Law Unions. With this development, the discipline changed fundamentally from a small middle-class profession, to allow a much wider section of the population to provide these services. As a consequence the book records an extensive list of people from every walk of life.

The Directory also records the location, as well as many details, about every hospital, dispensary, medical school, public health service, society, asylum, and medical institutions in Ireland. There is a list of obituaries at the end, and a list of Spa physicians in Germany that had become popular with the well to do!

Slater's Royal National Directory of Ireland was published in Manchester and London in 1870 and encompasses almost 1,200 pages of text and more than 120,000 names

Information contained in the Directory is subdivided into provinces and further subdivided into counties with entire sections given over to the cities of Belfast and Dublin. Each county and city is introduced by a brief social and political history as well as topographical and geographical descriptions.

For those familiar with the study of Irish history and in particular Irish genealogy, directories such as Slater's are a vital research tool. The principal value of Slater's Royal National Directory of Ireland for 1870 lies in the fact that only a handful of truly national Irish directories are available.

The Directory contains national lists for the principal gentlemen's seats and their incumbents, the villages, towns and other places mentioned together with a national list of advertisers appearing throughout the publication, which might prove of particular interest to some readers.

Each town and village contained in the Directory is introduced by its geographical location in relation to its nearest railway station together with population statistics derived from the 1861 Census of Ireland as well as a brief geographical and topographical description. The Directory provides the names and addresses of the principal private residents, together with those engaged in commercial and agricultural activity as well as the presence and location of religious, commercial and public institutions.

For the cities of Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Galway, Slater's Directory is as fulsome in its detail as Thom's Dublin City and County Directory is for the capital and its suburbs, which in the case of Galway and Cork is of particular importance as these major cities have attracted few complete directories. Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Galway are provided with complete street directories as well as lists of gentlemen, nobility, merchants and traders. Like Thom's, Slater's provides a list of trades and those engaged in them as well as the principal private and public institutions.

This version contains all four provinces and all other pages appearing in the two volumes. The provincial sections can be purchased seperately, to reduce the cost to you, and appear on the relevant county pages.

Hussey De Burgh's, The Landowners of Ireland, 1878 Hussey De Burgh's, The Landowners of Ireland, 1878

The unabridged title of this publication provides the extent and scope of the work republished here: The Land Owners of Ireland: An Alphabetical List of Estates of 500 Acres of £500 Valuation and upwards, in Ireland, with the Acreage and Valuation in each County. And also Containing A Brief Notice of the Education and Official Appointments of Each Person, to which are added his Town and Country Addresses and Clubs.

Compiled by U. H. Hussey de Burgh, a land agent, and published in Dublin in 1881, de Burgh's stated aims for his publication are interesting and to some extent put his work at odds with later publications treating on the landowners of Great Britain and Ireland. These were in the main, as Hussey correctly points out, based on a number of Government Returns, one of which was published only two years prior to Hussey embarking on his compilation. Hussey's aim was in part, to correct the Government's erroneous publications on the extent and value of Ireland's larger estates and by his own confession did this with the aid of the landlords themselves. Whether or not this provided a more accurate statement of the true extent and value of Ireland's larger estates as published, for example, John Bateman's Great Landowners of 1883 is unclear. What can be said is that Hussey was only interested in Irish landowners and not the remainder of Great Britain.

Hussey uses the phrase landowner in the same manner as that used in the Government's own returns, namely an outright in fee owner or an individual holding a lease for more than 99 years or shorter leases renewable in perpetuity. This as Hussey correctly points out, masks to a degree the true extent of some of the larger estates.

In addition to the name of the landowner, the county in which land is held, the extent of land held and valuations thereon, Hussey also provides some interesting biographical information on a large proportion of the landowners noted, which must is likely to have originated with the landowners themselves. This information is predominantly biographical in nature and includes government appointments, gentlemen's clubs, marriage details, addresses, family seat and so on.

For an Irish audience Hussey's compilation is perhaps more satisfactory that John Bateman's later publication as it treats entirely on Irish landowners and whose qualification for inclusion was a mere 500 rather than the 3,000 acres set as the benchmark by Bateman.

Presented in more than 500 pages with explanations of abbreviations, locations of gentlemen's clubs, etc., this fully-searchable edition is a must for anyone interested in who owned Ireland towards the end of the 19th century.

Even an abbreviated form of this publication's full title intimates at the extent of the information contained within: A List of all the owners of 3,000 Acres and Upwards, worth £3,000 a Year; also, 1,300 Owners of 2,000 Acres and Upwards, in England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales, their Acreage & Income from Land, Culled from the Modern Domesday Book.

In this, the fourth edition, published in London in 1883, John Bateman provides details of the great landowners of Great Britain and Ireland extracted from two returns made by Government rate collectors.

Bateman's lengthy introduction highlights the usefulness as well as the pitfalls of his publication not least with the information drawn from the returns for Ireland. Based on information garnered by two Government Surveys for the Poor Law - the second of which was known as the 'Amendment' and was conducted in 1876 - the compilers had been instructed to accept these valuations as the true test of value of land. However, as Bateman points out, valuations in Ireland gave the compilers some truly monumental headaches. For example, he the editor points out that true valuations of land were up to 15% lower in Ulster and a staggering 35% in Co. Kerry, that valuations placed in land for the purposes of Poor Law taxation. Even more perturbing was the nature of land tenure in Ireland. Unlike Great Britain, lessees of land for more than 99 years, commonplace in Ireland, were deemed to be 'owners' rather than tenants. This means that many immediate lessors were in fact mere 'middlemen'. As an example of this complication, Bateman points to Sir Compton Domville's estate in Ireland where in no less than eleven instances lessees were recorded as owners of portions of his estate.

Limitations of valuations aside, the 533 pages of the Landowners of Great Britain and Ireland holds a certain fascination that sometimes exceeds its usefulness, a point not lost on Bateman. Although Bateman would never have used the phrase voyeurism, he recognised the interest aroused by 'knowing another man's business', especially when those men were the great and good of Great Britain and Ireland.

The information provide on owners of land of 3,000 acres worth more that £3,000 a year is useful and in general states the extent and value of land held in each county of Great Britain and Ireland. Biographical information is also provided on the owner and often includes the year of birth, marriage and succession to the head of the family as well as the situation of the family seat. Also included are the public schools and universities attended and gentlemen's clubs enrolled at, from which the editor points out a gentleman's class, politics and religion may be inferred.

Kevin Kenny’s Manufacturers’ Directory is an exceptionally rare and unusual book. While he includes an exceptionally detailed directory of all businesses throughout the country from ‘Abdominal Belt’ to ‘Zinc Ware’ manufacturers, he includes much more besides. The book contains the most complete directory of local and national press at that time, which he includes to assist businesses to advertise their products and services. It also includes copious industrial statistics for the country, a complete list of Irish Trade Marks registered, and other details.

However, almost half the book is devoted to an analysis of all branches of Irish industry, manufactures and agriculture. From ‘Altar Candles’ to ‘Woollens’ Kenny gives his assessment of the opportunities for development. The book is prefaced with a clarion call for reconstruction of the Irish economy in the wake of World War One, with Kenny’s own analysis of the enormous potential for industrial growth.

However, for the year in which this edition was issued, it is the most complete directory available for Dublin and as such is a much- prized acquisition for genealogists and family historians. The useful information intimated in the title of this publication includes as one might expect various calendars for the year 1843; postage and carrier rates from Dublin to the rest of the country; interest tables and many advertisements, predominantly for life assurance companies. The publication also includes complete listings for all of the military, civil and religious establishments of Dublin City and County. These include the police, schools, hospitals, churches, landed gentry and the peerage of Ireland, which relatively speaking takes-up only a small proportion of this issue, some 130 pages.

The Post Office Directory proper is prefaced by an alphabetical list of the streets, lanes, etc., in Dublin and its immediate vicinity, followed by a list of the public buildings, banks and offices in the city. Although the Post Office Directory and Calendar does not include a streets directory for the capital and its suburbs, some three-hundred pages are given over to the alphabetical listings of the nobility, gentry, merchants and traders of Dublin, which compares extremely favourably with later editions of Thom's Dublin Almanac and Directory. There follows separate directories for the professions such as the legal profession, including barristers, attorneys, benchers of the King's Inns, medical practitioners, surgeons and apothecaries, and so on.

As one might expect from a Post Office Directory, the latter portion of this issue, some 100 pages, is taken-up with the General Post Office Directory. This consists of lists of the post towns of Ireland and post throughout Europe as well as the rates of carriage to these destinations. Of some particular interest is the Mail and Stage Coaches from Dublin. This provides the details from where all the stage coaches departed from in Dublin to destinations all over the country, times of departure and arrival as well as the intermediate stops on the coach's journey en route to its final destination.

As this is one of the earliest directories for Dublin that includes alphabetical listings for nobility, gentry, merchants and traders, this is a valuable acquisition for all family historians and genealogists.

The Post Office Dublin Directory and Calendar for 1858 The Post Office Dublin Directory and Calendar for 1858

Ref: IE0096
ISBN: 1-84630-279-X

First published in 1858 and republished here on fully-searchable CD-Rom is the twenty-six annual edition of the Post Office Dublin Directory and Calendar for 1858. Printed and published in Dublin by Alexander Thomas & Co., although similar in style and content, this publication is not to be confused with Thom's own Irish Almanac and Official Directory, first published in 1843.

The twenty-sixth edition of the Post Office Dublin Directory and Calendar contains just over 700 printed pages and can be seen as the complete official calendar and directory for Dublin for the year in which it was published. Beginning with an index to places in county Dublin, the Directory follows with a series of calendars for the year 1858. These include the calendars for law terms, university terms, religious feast days and festivals as well as solar and planetary information, such as the daily times for the rising and setting of the sun.

The Calendars for 1858 is followed by the Official Directory of Government Departments. This forms and extensive section of the the directory providing the names and addresses of all of the principal public functionaries throughout Ireland not just Dublin. The section includes civil and civic offices such as poor law authorities, schools, universities, schools of medicine, etc. Separate sections of the Post Office Dublin Directory include the Law Directory - detailing all of barristers, solicitors, attorneys, proctors and commissioners of oaths. Also present is a Banking Directory, Post Office Directory and a Directory for Conveyances, which includes rails, carriage and mails.

The bulk of the Post Office Dublin Directory is taken-up with the sections wholly treating on the City and Suburban areas of Dublin. Beginning with the directory, lists of all of the civic, civil, religious and educational establishments to be found throughout greater Dublin, there follows the extremely useful and valuable Dublin Street Directory. Identical to that published by Thom's in its Irish Almanac, this is a street-by-street directory of the city of Dublin, detailing each occupant or business together with the rateable valuation of the address. This section of the Post Office Dublin Directory contains some 150 printed pages listing tens of thousands of the city's residents and businesses.

The County Dublin Directory contains topographical and statistical information on the chief towns and suburbs lying outside of the metropolis. Beginning with Artane and Donneycarney and ending with Williamstown, this provides the names and addresses of many of the chief residents and trades people in a total of 53 suburban towns and villages. In the case of some of the larger suburban areas such as Rathmines, Kingstown and Bray street directories are also provided. The Post Office Dublin Directory is concluded with a list of the nobility, gentry, merchants and traders in the city of Dublin and its vicinity as well an alphabetical trades' directory, for many contemporary readers the most pertinent and read sections of any useful directory. These two sections alone constitute some 200-pages. The Post Office Dublin Directory for 1858 is concluded with an alphabetical list of advertisers that appear throughout the publication.

Republished on full-searchable CD-Rom the Post Office Dublin Directory must be one of the most useful directories for any Irish genealogist or family historian for period that the publication treats and is not to be missed.

Ref: IE0092
ISBN: 1-84630-275-7

First published in 1844 by Alexander Thom & Co., Thom's Irish Almanac & Directory, is still being published and is rightly seen as the pre-eminent directory and almanac for Ireland. When it was first issued in 1844 Thom's contained less than 1,000 printed pages; by the time of this 1868 issue the Directory contained more than nearly 2,000 printed pages, which are released here on fully-searchable CD-Rom.

The development of and deviations of the title of Thom's publication was in many respects driven by the changes and additions to its contents. Although primarily and rightly seen as an Irish directory and almanac, more than 600 initial pages are given over to a multitude of separate directories pertaining to the United Kingdom and its dominions and the breadth of these multifarious directories are given on this editions title page, which reads as follows: Thom's Official Directory of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland for the Year 1868. Comprising British, Foreign and Colonial Directories. Parliamentary Directory. Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage Directory. Naval and Military Directory. Statistics of Great Britain and Ireland. Government Offices' Directory. University, Scientific and Medical Directory. Law Directory. Ecclesiastical Directory. Banking Directory. Postal Directory. County and Borough Directory. Lieutenancy and Magistracy of Ireland. Post Office Dublin City and County Directory. In essence, this edition records the details of all the functionaries of state and government, military, civil and religious, from the Queen down to the clerks in the stationary office.

More than half of the 2,000 printed pages of Thom's Official Directory are given over to Ireland. Beginning with statistics for the country as a whole taken from the 1861 Census of Ireland, the Official Directory also provides county-by-county details on Irish landowners of 1,000 acres and upwards and 10,000 acres and upwards, with a further 300 pages or so detailing the multitude of state functionaries as well as the civil, religious, financial and military officers in the country. This includes all the incumbents of the various parishes and benefices in Ireland, all army and navy officers, barrister and solicitors, doctors and physicians, all educational and medical institutions and members of their governing bodies and even the clubs and private institutions, such as learned and academic societies and members of their respective councils.

The County Directory of Ireland provides statistical information on each county derived predominantly from the 1851 and 1861 Population Censuses of Ireland as well as the names of all the civil functionaries of the counties ranging from the deputy lieutenant down to local magistrates, the places and dates of county fairs, poor law unions, petty sessions and polling stations and this section is complete by the Borough Directory, which provides similar information for the municipal Boroughs and Towns of Ireland.

More than 700 pages of the 1868 edition of Thom's Official Directory is given over to Dublin City and its suburbs and as one would expect the level of detail provided in these sections far exceeds that given for the rest of Ireland. For the capital itself a comprehensive street directory is provided, which extends to the various townships and suburbs of the city such as Rathmines, Pembroke and Kingstown as well as the residents of many of the larger villages, which at this time had not been incorporated into the city. In addition, Thom's provides a list of the Dublin City and county nobility, gentry, merchants and traders as well as a trades directory and it is to the street and trades directories that most people are drawn to in search of their Dublin ancestors. The edition is completed with the Annals of Dublin, detailing important events in the city from the year 140 AD down to December 1867 and some 80 paged of advertisements.

Published from 1844 until the present day, Thom's Irish Almanac is rightly considered the pre-eminent almanac for Ireland, but the massive scope of this annual publication is sometimes forgotton or overlooked. A glance at the subtitle title for this publication gives an indication as to the depth and breadth of the information contained therein: Comprising British, Foreign and Colonial Directories. Parliamentary Directory. Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage Directory. Statistics of Great Britain and Ireland. Government Offices Directory. University, Scientific and Medical Directory. Law Directory. Ecclesiastical Directory. Banking Directory. Lieutenancy and Magistracy of Ireland. Post Office Dublin City and County Directory.

In total this publication contains over 1800 pages of statistical and residential information, which does not include the general index that requires some 30 pages and 50 pages of advertisements at the end of the edition. Although Thom's Irish Almanac is rightly seen as an Irish directory it is often overlooked that a third of the almanac is given over to Great Britain. This details all members of parliament, state functionaries, officers in the army and navy, Peerage and Baronetage and county officials and even provides obituaries for noted persoanges who died in 1879.

However, as an almanac and directory the detail provided by Thom's on Ireland is unsurpassed as both a county and Dublin directory and nationwide almanac. Some 700 pages in 1880 edition are given over to the the multitude of state functionaries, civil, religious, financial and military. This includes all the incumbents of the various parishes and benefices in Ireland, all army and navy officers, barrister and solicitors, doctors and physicians, all educational and medical institutions and members of their governing bodies and even the clubs and private institutions, such as learned and academic societies and members of their respective councils.

County by county, the alamanac and directory provides statistical information on each county derived from the 1841, 1851, 1861 and 1871 Population Censuses as well as the names of all the civil functionaries ranging from the deputy lieutenant of the county down to local magistrates, the places and dates of county fairs, poor law unions, petty sessions and polling stations.

The level of detail provided in the directory and almanac increases greatly once the directory reaches Dublin City and county. A third of the publication is given over to the country's capital and its immediate environs. For the capital itself a street directory is provided and this extends to the various townships such as Rathmines, Pembroke and Kingstown as well as the residents of many of the larger villages, which at this time had not been incorporated into the city. In addition, Thom's provides a list of the Dublin City and county nobility, gentry, merchants and traders as well as a trades directory and it is to the street and trades directories that most people are drawn to in search of their Dublin ancestors.

Republished here in fully-searchable digital format, at least one edition of Thom's Directory and Almanac is a must for every household.

The short title of Sir Charles James Jackson's incredible publication, English Goldsmiths and their Marks, belies the true extent of this monumental book. Published in London in 1921, this incredibly learned tomb extends to more than 750 pages and its full title provides a much better idea of its scope: English Goldsmiths & their Marks: A History of the Goldsmiths and Plate Workers of England, Scotland and Ireland with over 13,000 Produced in Facsimile from Authentic Examples of Plate and Tables of Date-Letter and other Hall-Marks used in the Assay Offices of the United Kingdom.

More than a quarter or 200 pages of Jackson's work is given over to Ireland and provides a fascinating history of Dublin goldsmiths and Irish goldsmiths in general for the period anterior to the Norman Conquest of Ireland, but is especially informative on the development and incorporation of the Guild of Goldsmiths in Ireland from their Dublin Charter of 1557 and through the records kept by the Corporation of Dublin, including a copy of the Charter of the Goldsmiths Company of Dublin. Commentary is made on the production and amount of plate assayed in Dublin, which reached its low point during the periods 1644-9 at just 230 oz. per annum to a high of 70,000 oz. in 1810.

A history and examples of the apprenticeship undertaken by goldsmiths is given until the point at which the apprentice produced his 'master-piece' at which point he was elevated within the Guild to the rank of quarter or -foreign-brother.

A lengthy description is provided on the marks of Dublin goldsmiths, which since their charter of 1657 have consisted of the harp crowned, the goldsmith's proper mark and the date letter. Two addition marks were later added, namely the 'figure of Hibernia' and the sovereign's head. Jackson provides also provides an extensive commentary on the evolution and inclusion of these marks and the most accurate illustrative table of date-marks and marks used on Dublin plate between 1638 and 1921. These marks are accompanied by examples of the work of the master goldsmith that produced the work, a description of the article assayed as well as the identification of the person who commissioned/owned the piece in question.

English Goldsmiths & their Marks also contains a chronological list of Dublin Goldsmiths from 1200 to 1904; a list of masters and wardens of the Guild from 1637 and a list of Freemen of the Guild, which includes the date that the goldsmith was made a freeman, together with the last notice of the freeman in the Guild's records or notice of the freeman's death. Importantly, these lists also include freemen who were admitted to the Guild, but were silversmiths, watchmakers, clockmakers and jewellery makers by calling.

Also included in English Goldsmiths & their Marks are table of enrolments of Dublin apprentices from 1634 to 1813, which includes the name of the apprentice, his parents and the master to whom he was bound and a list of quarter brothers and journeymen. Jackson also provides details on Irish provincial goldsmiths, silversmiths, jewellers and watchmakers from 1784 to 1827, which are arranged by county and year admitted to the Guild, together with lists of Irish provincial marks and examples of provincial gold and silver plate.

Jackson's English Goldsmiths & their Marks has no peer in the breadth and depth of material and has fully utilised the available unpublished manuscript sources on the freemen and apprentices of the Irish Guild of Goldsmiths.
