Townland Valuation of Ballynahone Beg

This page from [PRONI ref. VAL/1/B/534A] shows some of the houses that were recorded in the valuation of the townland in 1831.

Details are given of the dimensions of each building - length [frontage - column 2], breadth [depth - column 3] and height. [column 4]. Incidentally, the height gives you some idea of whether a building was single storey, two storey or storey and a half. The age and condition of the buildings were given in code. For more details on the code used by the valuers - read this.

Note that the black numbers in the first column refer to the numbers originally given to each building by the valuer during his survey of the townland. Once the 3, or greater, buildings had been selected, this smaller group of buildings was normally renumbered and the original number stroked out. Three houses were selected by the valuers and these are shown on the accompanying valuation map in red. Note that the valuers did not include these red numbers in the valuation book. However, I have added them. These were the numbers that were written on the accompanying valuation map.

One house, that of James McLean, was not included because its valuation of  2.15.2 did not reach the criteria. Note the words "wont come in" added by a valuer at a later date indicates that it would not be included. I have put a red X on the map to indicate where I think this house was located.
