Small Sources 3: Labourers in Shanagolden area 1808.

Another source which we found in our research for a new edition of ‘Tracing your Limerick Ancestors’. This is a list of labourers on the Spring-Rice Estate, Mount Trenchard, Limerick (Shanagolden area) from April to July 1808. These are in NLI Ms. 605 which is a ledger of estate accounts. The payment to each person is also included. The names are abbreviated: Jno = John; Michl. = Michael; Wm = William etc. No first name is listed for a few, and some are only indicated as ‘Son’ or ‘daughter’. Some names are also repeated.
