See also Nick Reddan’s Deeds Project - a lmore systematic approach to assembling notes on deeds. Mine is the magpie approach - each approach has its strengths. So far, I have completed notes (of varying quality) on more than 6,100 memorials. Where they have been transcribed in full, there are links to the annotated versions.

2021-2022 Updates - Digital seaching benefits from being able to match old versions of townland names with the more current ones, so in 2021 I started adding hyperlinks for townland names. Also being added are any known links to pertinent family trees.
NOTE: To find the names and townlands that are of interest, it helps to use the pages hyperlinked on the right of the map and then do a page search of the most likely ones. In time, Google's Site Search will eventually flag my more recent uploads, but that can take a while.


Deeds Research –links to my notes.
Made possible also because of a helpful tool for finding townland indexes - thanks to Nick Reddan.

My primary research focus has been on JACKSONs and/or OLIVERs, as well as on the dozens of families with family, business or neighbour connections to them. JACKSONs can be found in every county in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The OLIVERs of interest to me have been mostly in Northern Ireland.
Caught by the far-flung net of my searches are hundreds of other names as well as hundreds of townlands.

NOTE: As of June 2023 there were close to 3,000 pages of transcripts and notes on over 6,000 memorials - some only noted briefly, others almost in full. Because of length & uploading challenges, I split Bk 76-150 into two files: 76-100 & 100-150.
NOTE: The date ranges overlap and are approximate. The date of the agreement and the date of the memorial can differ. I usually just record the date of the agreement.


NOTE: sometimes it helps to locate deeds when they are grouped in smaller sub-sets
