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).  The name used by the Down Survey for this village was Cubboges (sic.).  In 1641, the owner for this townland was Archbishop of Tuam who was a Protestant. In 1670, the owner was John Brown (Protestant). Nine acres of land were forfeited.
