Wexford Estate Workers and Suppliers 1856

We have been researching sources for a planned Wexford guide. Some of these sources are too small to be specifically referenced in our guide, but will be of interest to some researchers. Below is a list of those mentioned in the farm accounts of the Wingfield Estate in the Civil Parish of Kilpipe, near Gorey for 1856-57. They include day-labourers, suppliers and a few customers for farm produce. The manuscript is Ms 19,004 in the National Library of Ireland. Jim Ryan
