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 was Killbeg.  In 1641, the owner of this townland was Ulick earl of Clanricard Burke who was a Catholic and Earl of Clanrickard who was a Protestant.  In 1670 the owners stayed the same.
