According to O Donovan’s Field Name Books 1838, the standard name given to the townland was Ballyweeaun and Baile Ui Bhuidheáin was its official Irish form. The village was also known as Ballyveean (Boundary Surveyors Sketch Map), Balliviane (County Cess Collector, Rev. Mich. Heraghty, P.P.), Ballyweaun (County Map), Ballyveawn (Mearsman) Ballybeeane (Tithe Ledger) and Baile Uí Bhuíáin (Logainm.ie).

Description:

Down Survey:

The Down Survey was a cadastral survey of Ireland carried out by William Petty, English scientist in 1655 and 1656.The survey was apparently called the “Down Survey” by Petty because the results were set down in maps; ‘admeasurement down’ was used; it is referred to by that name in Petty’s will”. (Wikipedia). In the Down Survey, there is no information about who owned the land in 1641 or 1670. It also does not give information on profitable and unprofitable land.

O’Donovan’s (1838):

In 1838 the proprietor for Ballyweeaun was Richard Levacy, Esq. in Cuslough near Ballinrobe. This townland of Ballyweeaun was composed of 680 acres, 0 roods and 31 perches according to O’ Donovan’s Field Name Books (1838). The townland is located in the parish of Ross, in the Barony of Ross and in the County of Galway. O’ Donovan tells us that the townland was under lease with no agent with a yearly bulked rent. O Donovan states that the soil was all mountain. A small part steep mountain and greatest part arable mountain with some bog and swamp. A few fields of oats tolerably good with some gardens of potatoes but some other parts crops are very poor. O Donovan also states that streams from the mountain form a river which runs through the village and falls into Pulnagan Kilbeg Upper. O Donovan further states there was a holy well called Tubervening.   The Co. Cess paid for 11 ¼ d. per acre half yearly for 168 acres.
