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”.

Comments about this page

  • In the 1901 census the head of households of 43 and 56 are actually mother Mary Kerrigan and her daughter Bridget Kerrigan respectively. It seems Bridget lived with her two siblings Margaret and Thomas separate from the rest of the family in household 56. By 1911 Mary Kerrigan’s house is now 44. Kate is missing in 1911 since she immigrated to Pittsburgh, PA. Margaret Kerrigan is missing since she immigrated to Johnstown, PA. By this time Bridget Kerrigan had married and is now Bridget Joyce living with her four oldest children in house 53. So I believe household 53 was formerly household 56 in 1901. Her husband of 6 years was Thomas Joyce originally from Kilbride, Owenbrin, Mayo. I believe he was not listed on the census since he would travel to the USA for work every few years. I have all of this information to share because Bridget Kerrigan Joyce is my grandmother and Mary Kerrigan is my great-grandmother. Bridget Joyce had a new home built on the same plot of land in 1930 and died there in 1955.
