The Tithe Applotment Books cover the period 1823-1837 and record the amount of tax payable from the occupier of land to support the Protestant Church of Ireland. A very unpopular tax.
The Tithe Applotment Books are now online at The National Archives Site. There are many transcription errors, so check the original document carefully.
The books are arranged by townland and list the name of each land occupier, the size and quality of their land and the tithe due.
By comparing what your ancestors paid to that of their neighbours in the same townland you can get an idea of how well off or not they were. The tithes were only paid on agricultural land.
In the 1830s many refused to pay these taxes and there are lists of these Tithe Defaulters on Irish Origins, a fee paying site. In this post I have included Fanning and Darmody Tithe Defaulters.
