Griffith's Valuation 1852/1855 - County
Clare Surname Index
Griffith's Primary Valuation took place
throughout Ireland during the middle of the 19th Century and the valuation
of Clare was published in 1855. Those parts of Clare contained in the
Union of Limerick were published in 1852. It was a survey of land occupation
to determine the amount of tax a landowner or occupier should pay towards
the support of the Poor Law System.
This Full Name Index to the valuation gives Surname, Forename, Town or
Townland, Parish and Poor Law Union of individuals named in the published
valuation. A person owning or leasing property in more than one townland
will appear separately for each townland. The type of property held (i.e.
house, garden, office or acreage of land), its valuation and map reference
numbers are not included and the printed valuation will have to be consulted
for this information. The Valuation Books are indexed alphabetically by
