The term “Desmond” Surveys has been commonly used to describe two quite distinct sixteenth-century surveys. This loose designation, originating in different senses of the word “Desmond”, has resulted in some confusion. In fact, the two sets of surveys arose from separate historical circumstances, were made at different times and concern different though adjacent territories. The surveys which are known as the Desmond and Peyton Surveys were undertaken by commissioners appointed in 1584 to inquire into the lands forfeited as a result of the Desmond rebellion. In 1598 a survey of the lands in the country of Desmond  1 was undertaken as a stage in dealing with the situation arising from the death in l596, without male issue, of Domhnall MacCarthy Mór, first earl of Clancarthy. For the sake of clarity it is proposed to refer hereinafter to this latter survey as the Clancarthy Survey, retaining the description “Desmond” for the earlier surveys of the lands of the earl of Desmond.

The Desmond Survey

Introduction to the Clancarthy Survey

The text edited below is that of portion of Carew Manuscript 625, preserved among the Carew collection at Lambeth Palace Library. The various collections of manuscripts at Lambeth have long been known by distinctive names, and Codices Manuscripti Carewani, nos. 596-638 of the Lambeth  p.2 volumes, comprise the collections (relating mainly to Irish affairs) 2 of Sir George Carew, president of Munster (1600-03) under Elizabeth I, who died earl of Totnes in 1629. Carew had antiquarian tastes and had a deep interest in Irish history. Like so many public officials of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, he made a large collection of documents and it is probable that he intended to write a history of Ireland or at least an account of the wars in Munster. However, it was Sir Thomas Stafford, to whom Carew bequeathed the collection, who carried out that project in his Pacata Hibernia. 3

How most of the Carew collection came to be preserved at Lambeth has been a much discussed subject 4. but hardly concerns us directly here. Manuscript 625, which has been inspected by the editor at Lambeth, is a well preserved folio volume measuring 8" by 12" by 1½". It has a modern binding of leather and is stamped with the letter Q and the Carew shield of arms. Carew himself, it appears, had devised a curious numeration of his volumes in three alphabets (A, AA, AAA, B, BB, BBB, etc., the letters I and U not being used). Thus, of Carew's total collection (manuscript and printed) of seventy-two volumes, most of which are at Lambeth, the forty-sixth item was designated Q in his original enumeration, and later became Volume 625 in the Lambeth Palace Library Volume Z in Carew's numbering (now Lambeth volume 636) comprises an index to volumes A-X. 5

In his catalogue of the Lambeth manuscripts, M. R. James remarks that the Carew manuscripts were fully calendared as State Papers and consequently did not need to be described by him. 6 In fact, as Butler points out, 7 the Clancarthy Survey in manuscript 625 finds no mention in the Calendar of the Carew Manuscripts. This is all the more curious in view of the awareness shown by the calendar's editors 8 of the great interest of the Carew material to Irish historians and antiquarians, a number of whom, from the mid-nineteenth century onwards, consulted the survey at Lambeth. Thus, it is referred to by an anonymous writer on “Ancient Irish Income” in the Ulster Journal of Archaeology for 1856. 9 W. M. Brady in his edition of the McGillycuddy Papers (London 1867) published a greatly garbled paragraph or so from the manuscript. 10 In the same year Daniel MacCarthy Glas published his Life and Letters of Florence MacCarthy Reagh, an important but badly arranged book, at once reflecting enormous industry and singular lack of skill in a combination characteristic of Irish research historians of the period. The author described the information provided in the survey as “most curious as remains of a civilisation dating before the period of acknowledged history”. It is clear that MacCarthy appreciated the interest and value of the survey but considered it “far too voluminous” to reproduce. 11 A similar reference to the “great length” of the survey is made by Mary A. Hickson in her Old Kerry Records. Miss Hickson (who evinced particular interest in the maps accompanying the survey) gives what purport to be direct quotations from the manuscript but what are in fact her own free adaptations. 12 A later writer on MacCarthy family history, Judge S. Trant MacCarthy, also consulted the survey and made knowledgeable comments on some of the place-names. 13 But it was William F. T. Butler who first drew attention to the great historical significance of the survey (“of its value, as well as that of the maps which accompany it, it is almost impossible to speak too highly”) and who expressed surprise that it had never been published or even calendared. 14 Butler's extended commentary on the survey is important, though he had difficulty in reading the manuscript and gave some defective renderings of place-names. 15 But he rightly emphasized the value of a document which throws an important light on the political and social structure of a great native chieftainship, part of the Gaelic polity going down before the Tudor attack. Professor Myles Dillon has remarked of the survey that, as an account of the rents and privileges enjoyed by the Lord of Desmond at the end of the sixteenth century, “it is later by four hundred years than the Book of Rights but it is apparently an exact record and of great value as such.” 16 There are other reasons why the survey should be published. It describes the location and extent of the lands of the chief families in south Kerry and south-west Cork. It contains material of importance for the study of place-names and its interest is further enhanced by the details furnished on fisheries, mines and forests. There is also information on contemporary prices of livestock and foodstuffs, on contemporary currency and coinage and on traditional units of weights, measures and land areas.

Historical Background

The historical background to the survey may be noted briefly here. 17 In 1565, as a check against Desmond Geraldine's power, Domhnall MacCarthy Mór, lord of Desmond, was created earl of “Clancar” or Clancarthy. Though he participated briefly in the first Geraldine revolt in 1569, sharing the general sense of land insecurity, his subsequent role was generally that of a spectator while the Geraldines, his neighbours and traditional enemies, were being overthrown. 18 Yet the suppression of the Desmond rebellion brought the undertakers to his doorstep and these Elizabethan adventurers soon realized that their own security demanded a satisfactory land settlement in the adjoining Gaelic lordship.

Domhnall's son and heir, the baron of Valentia, died in 1585, 19 he had no close male legitimate relatives, so that the future of the MacCarthy demesne lands was now bound up with the person of his daughter Ellen, his only surviving legitimate child. The authorities in Munster were naturally concerned that Ellen should make a fitting match. The ambitious Sir Valentine Browne, who secured a mortgage on some of the MacCarthy demesne lands by lending money to the unthrifty earl,  20 negotiated with Domhnall for a marriage between Ellen and his son, Nicholas Browne. The projected alliance with an upstart planter family was strenuously opposed by the countess of Clancarthy as well as by the leaders of the septs. They expressed their opposition to Sir William Herbert who suggested to Sir Thomas Norreys, vice-president of Munster, that he should consider offering for Ellen's hand, Herbert promising to use his influence to secure not only the queen's consent, but also a grant-of succession for Norreys to the earl's lands. But Norreys, “after some paines taken, he in the ende mysliked of it, being as it seemed, otherwise disposed to bestowe himself.” 21 Events now took a surprising turn and one which greatly disconcerted the English authorities. In May 1588 Ellen suddenly and secretly married the redoubtable Finín (Florence) MacCarthy Riabhach, tanist of Carbery, “the most dangerous man of all the Irish nation”. 22 Like the Brownes, Florence had also secured a mortgage on some of the earl's demesnes. Herbert urged that steps be taken to counter “Florence McCarte's dryft, to joyne in himsealfe Desmond and Carberie, and so to erect againe the greatnes and tyranny of the McCarties”. The problem was complicated by the emergence of a party within the MacCarthy territory which opposed at once Florence's ambitions and the extension of the English interest. The principal members of this group were Sir Owen O'Sullivan of Beara and the able Domhnall MacCarthy, the earl's bastard son, “whom that countrey doth much favor and would fayne have to be MeCartie”. 23

The neighbouring undertakers may have had their bitter disagreements such as that which arose between Sir William Herbert on the one hand and the Brownes, the Springs and the Dennys on the other,  24 but all had their designs on the MacCarthy lands and they made the usual convenient planters' identification between their own ambitions and the interests of the Crown. Sir William Herbert who desired to have 6,000 akers in the countye of Desmonde after the Earl of Glincarr's death 25 made a report to Burghley on the position in Desmond and recommended that “it is of great consequence and importance unto our inhabitation here that the Earl's estate be not enlarged, to the end that after his decease English gentlemen may be there planted {}” 26 This advice accorded with the fundamental principle of Elizabethan policy as expressed by Sir Henry Sidney: “the dissipation of the great lordships: to distribute the lands, if among English, the better: if not, yet that they be dissipated”. 27

The conflicting claims to, and interests in, the MacCarthy lands were brought to the forefront by the death of the earl towards the end of 1596. The planters urged that Florence's claims to “the landes  p.4 and honor” be rejected and that the country “be divided amongst gentlemen of good sort and condition”. 28 But the critical political situation brought about by the Tyrone rebellion precluded such a simple and brutal solution by the crown. 29 Nicholas Browne, whose particular concern was to enforce his title to the lands mortgaged to his father, submitted a memorandum to the lord treasurer in 1597 on the situation in Munster, with particular reference to the position in Desmond. 30 This included a list of the various septs in the lordship with a comment on their traditional loyalties or otherwise “to the howse of McCartie”. This general analysis is similar to the overall arrangement of the survey and there are also resemblances of phraseology, so that Browne may have been the author of, or at least a principal source of information for the survey, possibly helping with the final draft. 31

Purpose of the Survey

On 1 July 1597 the survey was ordered to be made. The English Privy Council directed that the commissioners of survey (these included the president of Munster) should proceed along certain lines of inquiry. They were to report on the extent and value of the earl's demesne lands; the various tributes traditionally due to him; the castles, islands and havens in his possession which might be kept by the crown; the extent of the mortgaged lands; the lands claimed by the dowager countess and the lands which might be given at a rent to the bastard Domhnall. Finally the survey was to list the English planters who were already in Desmond together with the rents and services they paid to the crown. The Irish council was to “add such other articles as may seem good to them whereby the country may be distributed to English people”. 32 The survey, then, was carried out with an eventual eye to partial plantation. A comparison of the above instructions with the text of the survey will show that the terms of reference were fairly closely observed.

Date

There is no date on the survey itself but it is possible to assign a date to it within certain limits. As we have seen, it was commissioned in July 1597. From a letter of Sir Roger Wilbraham, solicitor-general, to Sir Robert Cecil on 25 May 1598, commenting on the claims of Domhnall MacCarthy, it would appear that Wilbraham had been studying the survey for some time. 33 However this may have been only a draft or a portion of the report, for a royal warrant of 13 August 1598 mentions that “the said survey may not (as is doubted) be speedily effected”. 34 On 16 March 1599 the lord lieutenant and council gave their decision on the claims of Florence MacCarthy and Nicholas Browne. It is clear from this and from a petition by Florence of the same date that the survey had been completed well before that. 35 On the whole, it is reasonable to conclude that the material for the survey was gathered between the autumn of 1597 and the spring of 1598 (it has no hint of the turbulence in Munster in the latter part of 1598) but that it was not given formal shape until late in 1598. It may be said here that the survey did not in itself provide a solution to the various problems concerning the succession to the earl's demesnes, and there were protracted legal disputes for well over a generation afterwards. 36

Description of Manuscript

In his catalogue of the Lambeth Palace manuscripts, Todd 37 lists the contents of volume 625. The list is based on the table of contents which prefaces the volume itself and which is headed “The Principall Matters Contayned in this Booke.” Above this heading, at the top right-hand corner of the folio, is the unmistakable signature Gr Carew over the date 1617, presumably the year in which the volume was compiled from disparate material. It comprises a copy of a letter from Elizabeth “concerninge sterlinge pay” (1582); an account of wages due to the lord deputy and the army (1587-88); the survey; a discussion of James I's claims to Longford, Leitrim and other areas, as well as a project for their plantation; and finally, “a booke of the armes of certain sundrie noblemen and gentlemen of Irland {}”

 p.5

The volume has a confusing double foliation (recto only) throughout. A top right-hand foliation begins with the introductory table of contents and continues in sequence, blank folios being numbered. The bottom left-hand foliation begins with the first item in the volume, which is on folio 1 verso (bottom left hand) or folio 7 verso (top right hand). It is proposed to use the bottom left-hand foliation for reference. It is the foliation to which the contents table refers and the figures appear to be more contemporary with the script of the text than those of the top right-hand corners.

The Clancarthy Survey, published here for the first time, extends from folio 19 verso to folio 39 recto inclusive. A prefatory note (folio 19 verso) is followed by a general map in colour of Kerry and Desmond (folio 20 recto). Then comes (folio 21 recto and verso) a detailed list of the earl's demesnes (including those in his possession at his death as well as those mortgaged or disposed to others) and of his various fishings with their present distribution. 38 Next, there is a note on lands claimed by the earl (folio 22 recto) and the definition of various terms relating to traditional rents and services (folio 22 recto and verso). After a coloured map of Glanerought barony comes the main body of the survey, consisting of the detailed returns of the rents and services traditionally payable by the various septs in Desmond to the earl of Clancarthy, as well as some general observations on the lands surveyed. The septs are grouped under three main headings: the septs friendly to MacCarthy Mór (folios 25 recto to 28 recto), those traditionally hostile to him (folios 28 verso to 34 verso) and the O'Sullivan septs, usually aligned against him (folios 34 verso to 38 verso). In the case of each sept, its lands are named in successive paragraphs, the money value of the services and dues relating to specific lands is stated, and an annual total sum given for all the lands. Four other coloured maps are folded in at appropriate points. After the main body of the survey comes (38 verso and 39 recto) a description of rents due from various church lands to the earl as well as a note on a tribute from the lords of Duhallow. The survey is completed (folio 39 verso) by a grand total of the money value of all the rents and services.

Printed Text

The lay-out of the manuscript has been modified in the printed text. In the manuscript, extensive use is made of margins to show different divisions of the subject matter. Thus an outer left-hand margin is used to indicate each of the three main groups referred to above, the heading being placed outside the margin at an appropriate point. Sub-headings along inner left-hand margins denote the different septs within each main group. Each group of lands within a sept has a right-hand bracketing outside which is placed the money value of the rents and services for that particular group of lands. Since such an arrangement would be inconvenient to reproduce, the “vertical” marginal headings of the manuscript have been replaced by ordinary “horizontal” headings in the printed text. Similarly the money totals outside the right-hand bracketings of the manuscript are simply placed in a separate line in the printed text. The original paragraphing has, of course, been retained. The editor has italicised headings for the sake of clarity.

With the exceptions subsequently mentioned, the printed text is a faithful reproduction of the manuscript. Contractions whose meaning is certain have been silently extended. Thus wth, wch are printed as with, which, respectively; pl, plo, pt, pcells, porcon become ploughland (or plowland ), part, parcells, portion . Fortunately there are few doubtful contractions in the manuscript: indeed, though there were occasional reading difficulties, the manuscript was found to have very little undecipherable matter. Abbreviations which would find approval in modern usage have been retained— str, viz., li.s.d., for example. There is very little punctuation in the manuscript and it has been thought safer to follow suit in this regard, except where modern usage would require the insertion of full stops after abbreviations, as in wh. gr. (white groats). In money totals, the figure 1 occurring  p.6 in the manuscript has been replaced by the small roman numeral i (i d, i white groat). The spelling of the original (for example, initial v and internal u ) has been retained, as well as the usage of capitals and lower case. It should be noted, however, that the manuscript uses a special, large clear script for proper names (as well as a rather ornate script for the headings) and that this has not been reproduced in the printed text. Where scribal errors are corrected in the text, they are mentioned in the footnotes which also draw attention to any other peculiarities in the manuscript, square brackets enclosing letters or words indicate obvious omissions by the scribe. Finally, reference in introduction, notes and indices to different parts of the text is to sections numbered by the editor in order to facilitate indexing.

The Petworth Manuscript

In the sixth Reportof the Historical Manuscripts Commission (1877), p. 309a, there is mentioned as item 89 of the manuscripts of Lord Leconfield, Petworth House, Sussex: “Folio 16th century: A general survey of all such lands as are conteyned within the county of Desmond as well of such as wear the Earl of Clancarty's own demesnes as of all other lands belonging to the lords and others the freeholders of the said country (22 pp. + 4 maps done by hand).” On investigation, this manuscript was discovered to be another copy of the Clancarthy Survey. It is still preserved at Petworth House, Sussex. Written on paper and bound in vellum it is in good condition. Unfortunately, nothing has been discovered about its history. The Petworth manuscript (referred to subsequently as 'Petworth") may possibly have been copied from Carew Manuscript 625, but a comparison of the two texts suggests that both Carew and Petworth were independently copied from another manuscript. Erroneous forms of some place-names in Carew 39 But the Petworth spelling seems to be slightly more modern (e.g., internal v for u, general dropping of superfluous final e ) as does the letter formation (the modern form of w ). The hand, which seems to be later than Carew, is very regular, and this impression of “ruled” regularity is strengthened by the orderly lines of writing and the straightness of the side brackets. Petworth is also somewhat better punctuated and is a much cleaner copy, with no erasures at all. It may be of interest to set down here, side by side, the opening paragraph from the two manuscripts:

Carew MS 625
A General Suruay of all such
landes as are conteyned wthin
the Country of Desmond as wel
of such as were the Earle of
Clancarties owne demeanes as
of all other landes belonging
to the Lords and others the

w'th what dewties rentes and
Chiefryes are customablye to be
payd to the said earle out of the
same, taken vpon the recport
[sic] of the Sergeantes and officers
of the of the saide Contrye

Pentworth 89
A generall survey of all such

of the said Country,
wth what Dutyes rentes and
Cheifryes are coustomably to be
paid to the said Earl out of the
same, taken vpon the report of
the sariauntes and officers of the
said Country.

Petworth is spaced more generously and its material per folio is only about three-quarters that of Carew. Whereas paragraphs in Carew are concluded at the end of folios, Petworth occasionally runs on in mid-sentence to the top of the next folio.

It is difficult to refer to particular pages of the Petworth manuscript since it is not foliated at all and there are some blank pages. An introductory page (verso only) is followed by eleven folios, recto and verso, i.e., twenty-three 40 pages of manuscript in all, with one or two blank pages interspersed. Unfortunately some three folios of material 41 are missing from the manuscript. Since the sequence of maps is the same as in Carew (the first four in each case being those of Kerry, Glanerought, Dariry and Magunihy) it is  p.8 clear that the missing Petworth section included the maps of Dunkerron and Iveragh baronies. The lacuna was probably there when the manuscript was being bound as there are no indications that the missing folios and maps were subsequently extracted.

The Maps in Carew Manuscript 625

The maps are bound in at different places in the survey which they are intended to supplement as well as to illustrate. Since the complex assessment of the various rents and services was on different portions of lands, not on people, it was of importance for the purposes of the survey to show the location of the lands and the geographical distribution of the various septs. 42 All the six maps in Carew Manuscript 625 would appear to be in the same hand (which seems to be identical with that of the manuscript) although occasionally a later hand has added more names, e.g., in the general map of Kerry, the later form “Valentia” (corruption of Bél Inse) has been written under the original “Dariry”. 43 We may take it that the surveying for the maps was carried out at the time the information for the report was being collected. Though the map-maker may well have got help from earlier maps, these maps reproduced below were obviously made specially for the survey.

The late sixteenth century is a period of exceptional interest in the history of cartography. 44 More advanced techniques were being used, even though the kind of competence typified by Petty was still a long way off. The maps in the survey exhibit that combination of picture, survey and map characteristic of the period. In general it may be said that, considering the remoteness and difficulty of the area surveyed, these maps are extremely good. Our cartographer may not have had Bartlett's expertise or sophistication, but he gives us much more information about late sixteenth-century Kerry than Bartlett does about Ulster in the same period. 45 We cannot be sure what surveying methods and implements were used: possibly a compass, perhaps only a system of simple triangulation. The latter was practised since the early part of the sixteenth century but it is very doubtful whether our cartographer used the plane table which came into general use only about 1590. But accurate visual observation compensated in large measure for the lack of technical knowledge and equipment.

The general map of Kerry and Desmond 46 was intended as background reference for the five barony maps, the purpose of which, as has been said above, was to illustrate the place-names in the text and to show the extent of the different lands of the free-holders, distinguished by letters or numbers as well as by the use of different colours. 47 After nearly four centuries, the colours (varying shades of yellow, green and red) are still remarkably vivid and the lettering surprisingly clear. 48 Churches, abbeys and castles are represented by stylized drawings. Particularly important churches and abbeys are given a special symbol—e.g., Kilmore in the Dariry map (this map is of special interest, with its large scale, it clear pictorial symbols and its particularly fresh colouring). Castles like Dunkerron and Castleisland are shown as ringed around by a rectangular or circular fort. Unroofed buildings probably indicate a derelict state at the time of mapping. Wooded areas are represented pictorially while mountains are shown in pictorial elevation or perspective, a series of inverted V s which are intended to convey the impression of height. As Kerry is exceptionally mountainous, these curved lines are everywhere.

We have referred to the keen eye of the cartographer. The Skelligs are drawn impressionistically, just as they appear to a mainland observer—towering rocks jutting out of the sea, though shown perhaps too near the coast. The Kerry coastline is drawn with reasonable accuracy but the location of islands is sometimes erroneous (e.g. in Ballinskelligs bay). The island of Valentia is badly orientated in the four maps in which it is shown, and the drawing of the baronies is frequently rough-and-ready. Barony boundaries, however, were not well defined at the time. 49

Some other features of the maps call for a brief comment. The conventional compass directions (top of map to north, etc.) are not observed, and the elaborate compass roses found in other maps of the same period are lacking. 50 Indeed, artistic embellishment in general is at a minimum. With the exception of the general map of Kerry and Desmond, each of the maps is circular in shape and this must be regarded as a survival of the archaic method of drawing the world, and portions thereof, in a circular frame. It should also be noted that the original maps are of varying size, the Dariry map being drawn within a comparatively small circle and the Dunkerron map being by far the largest. None of the mans attempts to show a scale and there are no initials or signatures to indicate authorship.

Petworth Maps

The four surviving maps (Kerry and Desmond; Glanerought; Magunihy, and Dariry) in the Petworth manuscript closely resemble their counterparts in Carew Manuscript 625. The Petworth maps are also coloured. They lack, however, the additions in a later hand which are so obvious in the Carew maps and to which reference has already been made. It is of interest that when Dunlop was making his catalogue of sixteenth-century maps he noted the reference in the sixth Report of the Historical Manuscripts Commission to the Petworth maps. 51 However, it is clear that he did not inspect these maps and he seems to have known nothing of the existence of the Carew maps.

Hickson Maps

While the maps reproduced in the present volume have never before been published, mention must be made of the maps of Glanerought, Dariry and Iveragh which appear as an appendix to Hickson's Old Kerry Records. 52 Miss Hickson states that her maps “have been taken” from the Carew maps. This must be interpreted to mean free adaptations and in no sense copies or reproductions. The lines of division in the originals have been greatly over-simplified, the keys to the maps have been transposed and considerable liberties taken with captions and titles. Moreover, the draughtsman was obviously unfamiliar with the script of the originals so that many words were badly garbled in transcription. Some of the misreadings are quite inexplicable and would have been obviated by a consultation of a modern map of Kerry. The Hickson maps, then, are of no historical value.

Currency and Coinage in the Survey

The references to currency and coinage occurring throughout the text, as well as in the Desmond and Peyton Surveys, (“half face money”, “old money”, “sterling”, “legal money of England”) call for some comment. 53 The background here is the successive debasement of the Irish coinage begun by  p.9 Henry VIII and continued by his successors. Elizabeth I partially restored the standard for Irish silver coins in 1561 but lightened the weights. There was a somewhat similar development in English silver coinage during the Tudor period.

“Old money” or “half face money” almost certainly refers to the English silver issues of Henry VIII struck on the sterling standard of 92.5 per cent pure silver. These coins carried the king's head in profile as distinct from the later issues of the same on a debased standard, where the portrait was full face or nearly so. As only half the face could be seen when struck in profile, the term “half face” was a convenient one for distinguishing the profile issue from the later, or full face, issue. But there were, in fact, two English issues of silver on the sterling standard of Henry VIII. In the first (1509-26), they were based on a penny weighing 12 grains. In the second (1526-44), sometimes called the Wolsey coinage, the silver issues were based on a penny of 10 2/3 grains weight. It is this latter issue which is referred to in the survey as “half face” or “old money”.

The term “legal money of England” refers to the standard in force in England at the date of the survey, which was the sterling standard restored by Elizabeth in 1561. 54 The silver coinage in this restored sterling standard was, however, based on a penny weighing 8 grains. Therefore the bullion ratio of the “old money” to the Elizabethan standard money (“legal money of England”) was 10 2/3 to 8, i.e., 32 to 24, or 4 to 3. In other words, one-third would have to be added to any quantity of this Elizabethan English money to make it equal in bullion value to the same quantity of “old” or “half face” money of Henry VIII. 55 We may assume that where “old money” or “half-face money” is not specifically mentioned, a money reference relates to the then existing currency in the sterling standard at 8 grains to the penny.

The white groat is continually used in the monetary calculations in the survey. These groats are probably the debased Irish issues struck by Elizabeth in 1558 and possibly other debased issues struck before that by Mary (1554) and Philip and Mary (1555-58). All of these had only a 25 per cent silver content. The proclamations or orders defining these have not been discovered but the general average weights were about 8 grains to the penny for Mary, 12 grains to the penny for Philip and Mary, and 12 grains for Elizabeth. This would give a silver content varying from about 2½ to 3 grains per penny. Simon in his Irish Coins56 states that the 1558 silver was recoined from English base issues. The English penny at 8 grains sterling would have roughly 7½ grains of silver and the bullion ratio of it to the Irish base penny would be roughly three to one (7½ to 2½), the tendency being to value the debased coinage at the lowest standard. This would reduce the value of the Irish base groat (nominally 4d ) to 1⅓ pence (⅓ of 4d ) in terms of the restored coinage of sterling standard of Elizabeth: in other words, 3 white groats would be equal to 4d in new sterling money. This is precisely the value of the white groat that one establishes by calculation from internal evidence in the survey.

What has been said may be illustrated from a passage in the survey where reference is made to a “cuddy or refection of a sopper and breakefast for the earle of Clancartie {} or els in lieu thereof five markes old money which amountcth to iiijli viijs viijd ij w[hite] g[roats].” 57 Since a mark was two-thirds of a pound, 58 five marks “old money” was five times 13s 4d, or £3 6s 8d in “old money”. To get the equivalent of this sum in Elizabethan standard money, one-third (or £1 2s 2 2/3d ) has to be added. Thus we get £4 8s l0 2/3d, or £4 8s 8d and 2 white groats (worth 1 1/3d each). This may seem a strange method of keeping accounts but the white groat was in plentiful supply and had to be fitted into monetary calculations. 59

All the calculations in the survey, as well as the individual and group tots, have been thoroughly checked and it has been found that, with very few exceptions, the scribal accounting is accurate. Such arithmetical anomalies as do occur are dealt with in footnotes to the text. The gross total at the end is a correct tot of the group totals given throughout the survey.

It is not proposed to discuss the questions which the survey raises concerning Irish land measures, except to point out that the document affords further evidence of the irregularity of these measures. 60 Units of measurement varied from district to district: thus one late sixteenth-century source speaks of “every quarter containing three plowlands” in the Muskerry district of mid-Cork 61 while another comments, with respect to the carl of Clancarthy's demesnes, that some quarters contain “four ploughlands, some three ploughlands and some five ploughlands as the country manner is variable”. 62 An even wider variation than this emerges from a study of the survey. By statement or implication, it informs us that the number of ploughlands to a quarter in different parts of Magunihy and Dunkcrron baronies ranged from something less than four to six. 63

Definition of Services

It may not be out of place to comment briefly on the list of interesting definitions of services which appear in the survey, sections 13-25. A peculiar feature of these terms is that many of them (garemsloaeg, gallogoloh, kearnty, rout and musteroun ) do not occur subsequently in the text. Some of the terms will be readily recognized by students of the political and military structure of Gaelic (and indeed Old English) society in the period before its collapse while others are relatively unfamiliar and even etymologically obscure.

  • garemsloaeg:
    gairm sluag, “calling up of troops”. This is the well-known 'rising out".
  • sorren:
    sorthan, soirthean, “maintenance”, “free quarterage”. The general meaning would appear to be that of a tax or rent in victuals, etc.. extracted from vassals or inferiors. 64 Two other defintions of the term may be given here. Carew himself described it as “a kind of allowance over and besides the Bonnaghy, which the Galioglas expect [?] upon the poor people by way of spending-money, viz. 2s 8d . for a day and night; to be divided between three spears, for their meat, drink and lodgings”. 65 Where it occurs in a list of exactions by the earl of Desmond, it is given as meaning “a charge set upon the freeholders' lands for a number of galloglasses for certain days in a quarter.” 66. A comparison with the survey definition suggests that the term had no one specific meaning.
  • sorrenmore:
    sorthan mór, “great sorren”.
  • cuddy:
    cuid oidhche, “night's portion”. The ordinary meaning of this well-known term is a night's refection for the lord and his retinue. 67 The survey definition does not mention “night” at all, but subsequently in the text it is equated with “a refection of a sopper and breakefast”. 68 Miss Henley notes a phonetically more correct form, cuddeehih, in B.L. Add. MS 22022. 69 The surnames Cuddihy, Quiddihy possibly derive from the term.
  • dowgollo:
    The first syllable here is clearly dubh in the sense of “heavy” or “oppressive” (as in the familiar dubh-chíos). The etymology of the second clement is obscure. It may perhaps derive from (1) colla, a plural form of colainn, “flesh”, “carcase”, or (2) colludh, vb., “to ruin”; coll, n., “loss”, “ruin”. On the other hand the scribe's note that the term “signifieth Blacke rent” suggests a corrupt form of dubh-ghabal, gabal meaning “tax” or “tribute”. 70 See Exchequer Inquisitions (Kerry) Elizabeth William III, P.R.O.I., IA-48-89. p. 103: “…ut de nigro redditu anglic'dict' Black rent et Hibernice dict Dowgolie ….
  • gallogobh:
    i.e., gall-óglaigh, “galloglasses”. Robert Cowley in a letter to Cromwell in 1537 notes that “gallo-ghlaghes are noan other but as a kind of sowchynners, that servcth for their wages and  p.11 not for love ne affection.” 71 This mercenary aspect is not mentioned at all in the survey definition where the distinguishing mark of these soldiers appears to be the fact that they carried axes. 72
  • kearnty:
    ceithearn tighe, “household troop”. The Middle Irish cethern has the meanings (1) a troop or company of foot-soldiers, and (2) a mercenary soldier, or, in familiar anglicized form, “kern” or “kerne”. The meaning given in the survey, “light footmen”, is the usual one. The surname Kearney may possibly derive from this term. 73
  • rout:
    Etymology obscure. None of the various meanings of the word in the Oxford English Dictionary or the English Dialect Dictionary seems to be appropriate. Perhaps the term is connected with rout, “some kind of horse” (O.E.D.). Less likely is the use of “rout” in the sense of “a long round of visits or calls” (E.D.D.) or “to gather together” (O.E.D.).
  • musteroun:
    The survey definition accords with that in the state papers, “an impost on a tenant for the sustenance of the lord's builders”, 74 and with the meaning given for Musterroon in the list of the earl of Desmond's exactions, “a charge set upon the country to help the Earl in his works with cappells, garrans and men at his own will”. 75 The derivation of the term is less certain. The normal meaning of “muster” does not seem to be relevant here, except perhaps in the sense of a gathering (of workmen). Dinneen renders the Irish mustrún as “a person of consequence locally”. He also refers to the Norman-French mustron, “right of service attached to land held”. This would certainly seem suitable but Dinneen's derivation cannot be verified from Early French dictionaries. 76
  • canebeg:
    cáin bheag, “a petty tax”. A common feature of thefiscal organization of a Gaelic lordship was the imposition of a small land-tax for the benefit of the lord's wife. It is perhaps the most frequently mentioned tribute in this survey. A similar tax, cíos or fiacha baintiarnain ('lady's rent'), in terms of gold or silver, is mentioned in the early fourteenth-century Suim Tigearnais Meic na Mara. 77 In a note dated June 1587 describing the organization of the O'Sullivan Beare lordship, it is stated that “the standing rent due to O'Sullivan out or upon his country is but 40l., and that itself was ever allotted to the lady for the time being towards her idle expenses{}” 78 In Welsh society a tribute of food and drink was likewise payable to the chieftain's wife. 79
  • quirren:
    Probably coirín, dim. of coire, “pot”, “cauldron”,meaning a small container of some sort. 80 The scribe defines it as “a measure of a pottle or fower pounde”. A “pottle” is an obsolete liquid capacity measure equivalent to four pints. 81
  • sroan:
    Almost certainly srón, “nose”, as a synonym for an individual, more unusual, but no less rational, than the similar use of “poll”, “head”, “hand” or “body”. Here it is an expression for a man's ration. Elsewhere it is a term for a poll-tax: almsa as cech sróin o Fermit Muighi, “a nose-tax from Fermoy”; cf. Old Norse nef-gildi, “nose tax”. 82

Place-names

About 240 place-names are mentioned in the survey, most of them being townland names. Other denominations also occur, some of which are now obsolete. Though Butler identifies a number of place-names, his Gleanings does not substantiate his claim that he was “able to find most of these townlands on the modern six-inch Ordnance maps”. 83  p.12 Equally without substance is his assertion that S.T. MacCarthy “gives identifications of nearly all the townlands mentioned in the Survey”. 84 In fact, MacCarthy deals with only a handful of names. 85

The names, of course, are of great interest and invite comparison with later forms—those, for example, in the Books of Survey and Distribution. Elizabethan renderings of Irish place-names are commonly regarded as barbarous, yet many of the names occurring in the survey are a good deal less mangled than seventeenth-century forms, and not a few are phonetically nearer to their Gaelic originals than their modern equivalents. Considerable time has been spent in investigating the place-names, the great majority of which have been identified on the six-inch Ordnance Survey maps: the exigencies of time did not permit further study of the remainder. The sensible remarks of another editor are pertinent here, and indeed they apply to all editorial work of this nature: “{} but a great many points that the editor would like to be able to explain and to understand more fully himself remain obscure. This is due simply to the fact that the task of searching for the answers to all these questions would have turned the volume into a life's work. At the same time, inability to explain everything that needs to be explained has not seemed to the editor to be a sound reason for refraining from giving what information he can.” 86

All identified place-names are indexed under the modern spelling as given in the Townland Index (1877 edition). The versions found in the text are given in the index in their appropriate alphabetical position. Names which raise a particular point of interest are referred to in footnotes to the text. It should be understood that identifications given are modern equivalents of the name-forms occurring in the survey: the location or extent of any sixteenth-century denomination may be different from its present-day counterpart.

I should like to express my thanks to the archbishop of Canterbury and the trustees of Lambeth Palace Library for permission to inspect Carew Manuscript 625 and to publish the relevant folios, and also to Mr. Wyndham, owner of the Petworth manuscript, for permission to have it microfilmed for my use. I am also obliged to Professor Myles Dillon who kindly lent me his transcript of folios 22 recto-39 verso of Carew Manuscript 625.

Introduction to the Desmond Surveys

The surveys which are known as the Desmond and Peyton Surveys were undertaken by commissioners appointed in 1584 to inquire into the lands forfeited as a result of the Desmond  p.27 rebellion. These initial surveys were completed by 1585-86 and were a necessary part of the preparatory work for the Munster plantation. The Latin originals, preserved in the Public Record Office, Ireland, were destroyed in the Four Courts burning in 1922. In his 1919 guide to the P.R.O.I., under the heading 'Court of Exchequer, Revenue Side, Vice-Treasurer's and Auditor General's Offices', Wood notes the surveys thus:

Survey of attainted and escheated lands, Co. Limerick, 1586.

Survey of Great and Small Limerick by Christopher Peyton and others under commission of 19 June, 26 Eliz. to enquire into (1) the lands forfeited by the earl of Desmond, (2) the lands of other attained [Sic] persons, and (3) the lands of religious houses in that county.

Desmond Survey, 1586

This is a survey made under commissions of 19 June, 22 Aug., and 24 Aug., 26 Elizabeth, taken by inquisition, to enquire into the lands and their value which had been forfeited by reason of the rebellion of Gerald, late Earl of Desmond, his brothers John and James, and James Eustace, earl of Baltinglass, or by any other way. The lands affected lay in Cos. Limerick, Kerry, Cork, Waterford, Tipperary, Dublin and Kilkenny. 265

If we are to judge from the calendars, the originals must have been very voluminous, 266 for we know that the arrangement of the material was detailed and elaborate. 267 There survived after 1922 only a number of calendars and a few fragmentary transcripts and most of this surviving material is being presented in this volume. The documents edited consulted or otherise utilized may be listed as follows

[1] .M. 5039 P.R.O.I. This is a manuscript calendar in English of Christopher Peyton's Survey of Co. Limerick, which in the original was mostly in the contracted Latin with occasional glosses in English and French. 268 Traces of the Latin are retained here and there in the calendar, which was made by the late Mr. M. J. McEnery, who was deputy keeper of records and keeper of state papers from 1914 to 1921. Subsequent to 1922 another member of the P.R.O.I. staff, the late Mr. J. J. Hughes, made a scrupulously exact copy of the McEnery calendar, and this bears the reference number M. 5039 b.

[2] .M. 2759 P.R.O.I. This is a pencilled transcript of folios 122 to 143d of Peyton's Survey made by the late Tenison Groves (the Dublin antiquarian and genealogist) and presented by him to the P.R.O.I. It relates to the 'toghes' of Gortcoythe, Kyllydye and Kylheylagh: Groves presumably had a specific reason, perhaps arising out of a genealogical enquiry, for transcribing these particular folios. In view of the destruction of the original material and of its survival only in calendar form, this fifty-five page transcript, made only a few years before 1922, is of special importance as a verbatim copy in contracted Latin of portion of Peyton's Survey and as preserving the lay-out of the original. The reading difficulties presented by a pencilled manuscript in a not very legible hand were obviated by this editor's fortunate discovery that Groves had had his transcript typed and bound and had presented it in January 1919 to the manuscripts room of Trinity College, Dublin. 269

The Groves transcript reproduces the introductory title of the original Peyton Survey:

The Book or Survey of the Attainted and Eseheated landes in the Countye of Lymeriek in the Provinee of Munster within the Realme of Ireland made in 1586 in the XXVIIth year of the Reign of o[ur] Soveraigne Ladye Queene Elizaheth etc. which came into her Majestie's handes by the Erle of Desmonde, John of Desmonde, and James ffitzmorris warre and others their confederates and associates.

Chr: Peyton 1586)

Also reproduced is a rough index to the section transcribed, under three headings— Nomina Villarum (that is, the place-names), Nomina Boscar in quibus existit maeremio and Nomina Tenencium Comiti Desmon. ptinen tma. libor. qm. Custumar. There follows, in wording and format,  p.28 a reproduction of folios 122 to 143d, each successive folio, recto or dorso, being represented by a sheet of the transcript. Headings of the subject matter are marginal and vertical, in the contemporary fashion, rather than horizontal. Thus the freeholder or tenant whose lands are being described is mentioned in an outer left-hand marginal heading while inner left-hand headings note the particular land denominations as well as descriptions of woods or minerals. Right-hand headings give the areas—in acres or quarters—of the lands being described.

We reproduce here folio 122-122d, as it appears in the Groves transcript, and it should be compared with its calendared abstract, section 187 of the printed text.

Matter for folios 114 & 115 (ms f. 122 and f. 122d) to follow

A detailed collation of the whole Groves transcript with the relevant sections of M. 5039 (sections 187-201 of our printed text) confirms what the reader will have gathered from a sample comparison—that the McEnery calendar faithfully abstracts the original Peyton Survey. The considerable repetition of the original is avoided while all essential information is preserved. Name-forms as well as money and land figures are meticulously copied. Occasional explanatory comment is kept to a minimum and is always helpful. At the same time order and clarity are not lost in the process of abbreviation. The admirable compression of the calendarist is illustrated by the fact that the information contained in over forty folios (recto and dorso) of the original is covered in some eleven foolscap pages of the calendar.

Apart from indicating the format of the destroyed original, the Groves transcript demonstrates the comprehensiveness and reliability of M. 5039 as a calendar of Peyton's Survey. Similarly, we are justified in assuming that M. 5038 (see below) is accurate and reliable in the same degree. As far as Co. Limerick is concerned, then, the loss of the original material is by no means irreparable.

[3] .M. 5038 P.R.O.I. Like M. 5039, this is a manuscript calendar in English of the Co. Limerick portion of the Desmond Survey of 1586, the Latin original of which was destroyed in 1922. Again, the calendarist is M. J. McEnery, and a copy (M. 5038 b) of the calendar was made by J. J. Hughes.

[4] . M. 5037 P.R.O.I. This is one of about a dozen 270 privately copies of a thirty-three page calendar in English of the Co. Kerry portion of the Desmond Survey. Manuscript notes on the P.R.O.I. copy inform us that the calendar was privately printed for Samuel Murray Hussey 271 who gave a copy to James F. Fuller, M.R.I.A., who in turn presented it to the P.R.O.I. in January 1923 272 (i.e., after the destruction of the original material). There are also some notes in the handwriting of the late Mgr. Alfred O'Rahilly who in the early 1930s was considering the possibility of a new edition of Smith's History of Kerry. Rev. Sir H. L. L. Denny, in his Handbook of the County Kerry Family History, Biography etc. (1923), p. 11, refers to the 'survey of the estates of the sixteenth Earl of Desmond privately printed by Hennessy: copy with notes by S. M. Hussey in possession of Col. E. Nash'. W. M. Hennessy was a well-known Kerry antiquarian: the whereabouts of Col. Nash's copy and the nature of the 'notes' remain to be investigated.

The 'Kerry Desmond Survey' (if we may conveniently call it that) begins by listing the rents issuing out of the lands of various free tenants in Corkaguiney barony, as well as the money value of the obligatory supply of victuals and lodgings to retainers and servants of the earl of Desmond on his periodical visits. Also listed are the earl's custom dues out of imports and exports, fishings and shipwrecks. The gross total of the barony's revenue is then given. There follow similar returns for other north Kerry baronies.

From 13 August to 15 October 1927, the Kerryman serialized the Kerry Desmond Survey calendar. The series was prefaced by the statement that 'the subjoined is a copy of the translation [Sic] of the Desmond Survey, the original of which perished in the destruction of the Public Record Office, Four Courts, Dublin. It was kindly forwarded to us for publication by Mr. M. J. Byrne, solicitor, Listowel.' Apart from his law practice, the late Matthew J. Byrne was one of a dedicated group of Kerry local historians in the early years of this century. To those interested in the Kerry Desmond  p.29 Survey, it should be pointed out that the Kerryman serialization, though generally identical with M. 5037, leaves out a number of sentences, transposes substantial sections and omits altogether a portion corresponding to pp. 21-5 of M. 5037. A curious feature of both versions is a number of what seem to be superscript numerals for footnotes, possibly as comments on place-names. If these notes did exist, correspondence with the Kerryman, the late Mgr. O'Rahilly and the representatives of the late Mr. Byrne failed to reveal any trace of their whereabouts. 273

[5] . A fragment of the original Desmond Survey survives in the form of a two-page Latin transcript dealing with the manor of Kilcolman (mod. Kilcolman East, Middle and West: Doneraile par. Co. Cork) which is preserved in the P.R.O.I. Certified as authentic in May 1874 by the then assistant deputy keeper of the records, J. J. Digges La Touche, it is described as a portion 'of a Record in the Public Record Office of Ireland entitled "Desmond Survey Roll", Auditor General's Department'. There is also a copy in the library of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland.

Of the documents listed above, M. 5038 and M. 5039 are here edited in full. Despite some duplication and overlapping, 274 it seemed to the editor that the historical importance of the calendars warranted the publication of both in full, and the commission readily agreed. As for M. 5037, it could be argued that it is already available (albeit in a very limited private edition) and that the material it contains may also be found in the Kerryman files. In some respects, however, M. 5037 is an unsatisfactory document—it seems to have been hastily prepared and printed—and a critical edition is clearly called for. Its place-names need to be investigated and as far as possible identified, 275 and its precise relation to the 'Desmond Inquisition' established. 276 When the present editor had completed some preliminary work on the Kerry Desmond Survey, it became clear to him that to attempt this additional task would be to protract impossibly the publication of this volume, already long overdue. But he cannot sufficiently stress the importance of making available this valuable sixteenth-century source in properly edited form. 277

By a royal commission dated 19 June 1584 Sir Henry Wallop, Sir Valentine Browne, Thomas Jenison, 278 Launcelot Alford and Christopher Peyton were appointed 'to inquire by the oaths of good and lawful men' into the lands which were forfeit to the crown as a result of the Desmond rebellion, and to return 'the clear yearly value of the premises and who receives the issues and profits'. 279 The new lord deputy, Sir John Perrott, was empowered to appoint additional or substitute commissioners, and by late August 'since Thomas Jenison . . . is aficted with disease so that he is unable to act. . ., Thomas Wyseman and Arthur Robins gents' were added to the original panel. 280 As well as the general commission, a special group seems to have been concerned with lands in the counties of Waterford, Limerick, Cork, Kerry and Cross Tipperary. This group comprised Nicholas Walshe, chief justice of Munster; John Meagh, second justice of Munster; Thomas Wyseman; James Gowle; Robert Rosier, and Arthur Robins 'and any three of them who shall be named by Henry Wallop and Valentine Browne.' 281

Not until late August 1584 was the final composition of the 'surveyors' determined and the work begun. 282 The commissioners could expect favourable conditions: 'a man may now travel the whole country and none to molest him,' wrote the sheriff of Co. Cork, Sir William Stanley, to Walsingham in September 1584. 283 The work was commenced in Tipperary which however had to be left partially unsurveyed as the earl of Ormonde had seized a considerable portion of the escheated lands which the local people were afraid to point out. 284 From Tipperary, the commissioners proceeded into Limerick where Wallop expressed his satisfaction that so much fertile land had become forfeit. In mid-September, the survey party was in north Kerry where much of the land was noted as being good arable and pasture, though not as fertile as Limerick. From Dingle the commissioners went northwards, skirting the Shannon estuary and moving back into Limerick by mid-October. They took a well-deserved rest at Askeaton before continuing their labours in Cork and Waterford. From Cork in late November they were forced by weather conditions to return to Dublin, there to complete the survey.

In spite of the 'pacification' of Munster, the journey had not been easy going. Indeed the very devastation of the province (which made a forcible impression on the commissioners) presented its own difficulties. The weather was 'extreme foul' and the roads and tracks through woods and over mountain were tedious and dangerous. Alford as well as many of the servants were struck down by fever, old Sir Valentine Browne was nearly drowned on two occasions and his son suffered a broken arm. Several horses were lost in the course of the journey. Provisions were scarce and dear, one hundred persons had to be fed at the commissioners' table and Burghley was being asked for more money. The sullen resentment of many of the inhabitants had also to be contended with. Yet the over-all reaction of the surveying party was one of jubilation that such extensive and fertile lands were being found for the crown, though this feeling was tempered somewhat by anxiety about Irish claims to land. 285 Naturally the surveyors were concerned to secure their own share of the pickings. Wallop was well aware that 'there are many suitors at court for the best things here' and wished to have an estate reserved for himself in the Knockainy-Lough Gur district of Co. Limerick. 286

Norreys, the lord president of Munster, summed up for Burghley: 'The commissioners find the country generally so wasted and dispeopled in all parts that small hope appeareth in many years to inhabit the same and those also which remain very loosely disposed through the licentiousness of rebellion whom of themselves being evil this late enquiry which they see made of their lands hath much worse affected: nevertheless their weakness and last extremity is such that they are altogether unable to do any hurt however evil minds they bear. 287

On 28 November 1584 the commissioners returned to Dublin from Munster 288 but almost a year was to pass before the survey was completed. As Dunlop points out, 289 delay at this early stage was harmful to the progress of the plantation. In January 1585 Walsingham informed Wallop that the queen would not dispose of any of the escheated lands before the survey became available. 290 It was early October before Wallop informed Burghley of the delivery of the record of the survey to the lord deputy, Wallop admitting that it was roughly and imperfectly done. 291 Perrot was not very enthusiastic about the plantation proposals 292 and, in a letter to Burghley in April 1586, Wallop defended the commission of survey against the lord deputy's criticism. The letter reveals something of the commission's methods of inquiry:

“His Lordship hath always seemed to make light of our travails that were commissioners for the surveying of the lands in Munster, saying it would come to little or nothing, but now of late to discredit our service the more he hath often spoke it openly, that all we did was by a beggarly sergeant and that without him, we could have done nothing, by whom he meaneth a man, who had been under officer for the late Earl of Desmond by that name of a sergeant in Connello, and in some other part of the county of Limerick, the greatest part whereof we had surveyed before he came to us: he was perfect and ready to tell us the names of the places and persons who had been in rebellion in all those quarters, where his instructions indeed furthered greatly our travail and the service, but in the counties of Cork, Kerry, Waterford and the Cross of Tipperary he could say nothing. And if he had been as perfect in all them as in the other, yet I hope Her Majesty nor your Lordship will not be persuaded or judge that the substance of all our service and travail consisted only upon his report and declaration . . . 293

Christopher Peyton also reminded Burghley of the difficulties of making a survey of lands belonging to people long since dead and situated where there was no one to tell the name of the place, the last owner or the value of the land. 294 Solicitor-General Roger Wilbraham was willing to make allowances for a survey 'done by the information of the serjeants for the most part, as I am told by those were in the service, so as it is but conjectural and yet the service of those commissioners very effective, and available to Her Majesty, but error is incident [to] all general services'. 295 And Walsingham assured Wallop of his own satisfaction (though this was before the completion of the survey): “Touching the survey of the escheated lands in Munster, I do verily think that none of these that have been made heretofore, have been performed with like sincerity and  p.31 sound meaning, towards Her Majesty's profit, for I know that some of the former have been made to serve rather private men's turns than the advantage of the crown . . .” 296

The survey enabled the government to estimate approximately the amount of land at its disposal and so to proceed with the drafting of a provisional scheme for the peopling of Munster. Yet within a short time it became clear that the survey was imperfect and incomplete—it frequently refers, for example, to lands not yet surveyed. When Secretary Fenton was sent to Ireland with the scheme for re-peopling Munster in November 1585, his instructions were that the original survey was not sufficiently thorough and he was therefore to see to it that the lord deputy and council should 'appoint meet persons to survey the same as near as may be, according to the plot aforesaid with respect as well as of the goodness as of the quantity of the ground'. 297 But by June 1586 Fenton was reporting to Burghley that 'no commissioners have been as yet sent from hence [Dublin] into Munster to perfect the survey of the escheated lands and to compound with the intermixtors.' 298

The commissioners who had been appointed in August 1586 'for the dividing and bounding into seignories Her Majesty's attainted, escheated or concealed lands within the Province of Munster' 299 soon found that 'very many of the offices upon Mr. Treasurer [Wallop] and Sir Valentine Browne's surveys, which should have entitled her Majesty, for want of law skill therein are defective in matter, as not declaring what offence the offenders committed—either felony or treason;—or of what estate the offenders were seized either for life or in fee, and such like blemishes to disable the offices, which many of them I doubt are incurable, we thought good to procure here another new commission besides to the persons named to be surveyors in England, to inquire of all attainted and forfeited lands which we did execute and found divers offices at Dungarvan and Youghal whilst they measured there and so did dispatch both businesses as near as we could with one charge and labour. 300

Dunlop has remarked on the contrast between the sophisticated paper planning for the Munster plantation and the slipshod nature of the arrangements in practice. The plantation, says Quinn, 'is an excellent example of the ideas of a sixteenth century government outrunning its capacity for performance'. 301 The Desmond survey exemplifies—in its imperfections, in the delay in its completion and in the difficulties to which it subsequently gave rise—the unsatisfactory nature of the arrangements for the plantation as a whole. Despite its documentary value, the survey comes within Spenser's general censure: 'Some think that the first plot was not well instituted nor grounded upon sound advertisement and knowledge of the country . . .' 302

Peyton's Survey, dealing with Co. Limerick only, was a separate report 303 but arose out of the same general commission 304 as the Desmond Survey. Though the introduction to the survey states that it was drawn up by 'Christopher Peyton and other commissioners', 305 it is clear that Peyton was the real compiler. His diligence in the work of surveying was commented on by Perrot 306 and, as we have seen, Peyton himself wrote to Burghley on the difficulty of the task. 307 In May 1585 Peyton asked Burghley whether he should remain in Ireland and proceed with other surveys or return to England in July with Sir Valentine Browne. 308 As far back as 1581, Peyton had been interested in succeeding the ailing Thomas Jenison as auditor of Ireland. 309 Clearly, 'his diligence in the late surveys' 310 would help to recommend him to Walsingham and Burghley, so that we may partly attribute the existence of a separate Peyton Survey to personal ambition. When Jenison died, the favour Peyton sought was granted, in November 1587 (by which time he had done more work on Munster surveys) and he expressed his thanks to Burghley. 311 It is worth noting that Peyton was involved on Perrot's side in the latter's dispute with Wallop. 312

On 28 April 1586 Peyton informed Burghley that he had sent by the bearer a book of survey of all the attainted and escheated lands in the small and great county of Limerick, with an index at the beginning of the book. 313 It seems then that Peyton's Survey was not completed until some six  p.32 months after the Desmond Survey. On 12 July 1586 Peyton asked Burghley to confirm that he had in fact received his previous letters and 'the book I sent unto your Lordship of the great and small county of Limerick whether your Lordship have received them or not and what your Lordship's pleasure is for the rest of the counties. I remain here, I know not how, until I have some direction from your Lordship, either for the survey, or for the auditor's place, or for the treasurer's reckoning.' It is evident from the rest of the letter that Peyton was dissatisfied with his position in the Irish civil service. Like many of his colleagues, he wanted a share in the confiscated lands— 'the preferment of the castle and lands of Mucrus court in the great county of Limerick which he had already begun to inhabit'. 314

The most obvious difference between the Desmond and Peyton Surveys 315 was that the latter was confined to the forfeited lands in Co. Limerick whereas the former covered lands in counties Limerick (calendared in M. 5038), Kerry (M. 5037), Cork, Waterford, Tipperary, Dublin and Kilkenny. Even in its surviving calendar form, something of the wider scope of the original is retained since M. 5038 mentions a relatively small number of manors, lands and tenements, including religious houses, in counties Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford. 316

M. 5038 altogether lacks the lengthy prefatory material found in M. 5039. This includes sections on the question of land measurements, the various divisions of Ireland and an annalistic prophecy. 317 Another section contains detailed instructions (not found in M. 5038) for the commissioners of survey 318 while Peyton's Survey is concluded by an appendix entitled 'The Plot from England for inhabiting and peopling of Mounster'. 319

To a large extent M. 5038 and M. 5039 deal with the same material but do so in different ways. Indeed, they are complementary rather than overlapping. In the case of the lands of Pierce Oge Lacy of Bruff, for example, Peyton's Survey gives us details about the 'ruinous castle', the presence of timber, the wasted condition of the lands and the various sub-denominations. 320 The Desmond Survey, on the other hand, though naming only the principal denomination (Doroglogh: mod. Durraclogh, Ballingarry par.) gives the valuation arrived at by the commissioners in money, victuals and provisions. 321 Again, the detailed description of Lough Gur castle in M. 5038 (sect. 388) is not found in M. 5039 (sects. 21, 22) though the latter specifies the constituent denominations and mentions that Sir George Bourchier was in possession of the manor. Information on the fair at Knockainy in M. 5039 (sect. 16) is not found in M. 5038. Contrast also the information on Glenogra in the two surveys (sects. 17, 389). John Oge McRuddery, the White Knight, is mentioned only in passing in M. 5038 (sects. 444, 696): his lands in Limerick are detailed in M. 5039 (sects. 321, 323). In general, Peyton's Survey is more detailed with more information on subdenominations and natural features, while rentals and valuations are supplied in the Desmond Survey. Identification of place-names is more difficult in M. 5038, as there are lengthy sections without 'toghe' or barony headings where no parish is mentioned.

Finally it may be noted that whereas the original foliation is noted on the margin throughout M. 5038 it stops completely in M. 5039 at section 156 (f. 102d). Again, marginal headings (placenames, woods, etc.) disappear half way through M. 5039 but these are in any case superfluous since they simply repeat (sometimes with different spellings) the names given in the text.

The student of the Munster plantation would do well to take note of some contemporary maps. 322 We have no detailed map of preplantation Munster. 'A single draught of Mounster' [?1572] attributed to Robert Lythe is clearly drawn but too general. 323 The post-plantation maps are more rewarding. A large scale Munster map of 17 June 1586 shows the attainted lands with the names of the undertakers, but in no great detail. 324 An informative if somewhat inaccurate map is that of Co. Limerick in 1587 drawn by Francis Jobson, with a fretwork cartouche enclosing a description of the lands surveyed and the method of survey. 325 But perhaps the best—known plantation map is Francis Jobson's 'The Provence of Munster', 1589. 326 Jobson was one of the four surveyors  p.33 employed in measuring the confiscated lands, the others being Robins, Lawson and Whiteacre. On the margin of the map is a letter from Jobson to Burghley in which the cartographer states that he spent nearly three years surveying and measuring the escheated lands in Munster, having been appointed by Wallop, Browne and the other commissioners of survey. The map is overcrowded and, in general, in-elegantly executed (indeed Jobson admits its limitations) but is valuable in that it shows the location and size of the seignories. This is the map referred to by W. H. Hardinge in his R.I.A. paper in December 1861. Hardinge was concerned to verify that mapped surveys had accompanied the inquisitions and books of surveys, and he regarded the 1589 map as 'a reduction by Jobson from the townland surveys, made in pursuance of the' commission dated 19 June, 26 Eliz. 327

In conclusion, a word may be said about the historical importance of the Desmond and Peyton Surveys, even in their surviving calendar form. The indicate, for example, the continuity of Gaelic social and territorial organization within what was in name at least an Old English lordship. At the same time, the fiscal and economic structure of that lordship is revealed through the nature of the rents and services payable to the earl of Desmond. The surveys also serve to emphasize and particularize the havoc wrought by the Desmond wars since they refer frequently to devastated lands and ruined buildings. They furnish evidence on the degree of complicity of the various freeholders in the rebellion. As in the case of the Clancarthy Survey, there is much important information of a topographical nature throughout and the surveys are of importance for the study of place-names. Their interest is further enhanced by the details furnished on fisheries, mines and woods, as well as on traditional units of areas, weights and measures and by the information that can be deduced on contemporary prices of livestock and foodstuffs.

In making a detailed return of land ownership and occupation, the commissioners were not only carrying out essential preparatory work for the Munster plantation but unwittingly creating a valuable source for Munster history. Taken together with the maps referred to above, the Elizabethan fiants, 328 the various reports on the plantation up to 1622, the Civil Survey, 329 the Down Survey parish and barony maps, 330 the Books of Survey and Distribution, 331 and the 1659 'Census', 332 the Desmond and Peyton Surveys will enable us to trace further the great changes in land ownership for these areas from the Desmond rebellion to the Williamite confiscation.

My thanks are due to Miss Margaret Griffith, deputy keeper, P.R.O.I., for her readiness in making the calendars available and to Professor Seamus Pender, Diarmuid O Murchadha, and Doncha Ó Conchúir for their suggestions on the identification of certain place-names in counties Waterford, Cork and Kerry respectively.

II The Peyton and Desmond Surveys

P.R.O.I. M. 5039

Peyton's Survey

[1] Survey of attainted and escheated lands in co. Limerick which came to the hands of Queen Elizabeth by the wars of the Earl of Desmond, John of Desmonde and James ffitz Morris made in the year 1586 a.r. xxvii Eliz. 333

[2] Survey of attainted and escheated lands in the Great and Small County of Limerick divided into three parts viz the Earl of Desmond's lands (Terre comitis), land of divers persons attainted and lands of divers religious houses: all said lands are reduced to quarters or ploughlands set in their right division and allocated to their rightful owners as before the time of the rebellion.

The Survey was compiled by Christopher Peyton and other commissioners appointed by commission hereafter mentioned.

 p.34

[1] Survey of attainted and escheated lands in co. Limerick which came to the hands of Queen Elizabeth by the wars of the Earl of Desmond, John of Desmonde and James ffitz Morris made in the year 1586 a.r. xxvii Eliz. 334 bearing date at Westminster 19 June a.r. xxvi Eliz. Only such lands as belonged to Rebels dead slain in rebellion or executed by martial law are included as such are accounted of the nature of attainted lands. Lands of rebels yet alive, some pardoned and others not, are not included, as they may still expect grace and favor and especially as they have not been attainted.

[3] There is a great difference in the measures of the Great and Small County adjoining to the judgment formed in their first western journey 335 into Mounster in the year 1584 annis xxvi and xxvii Eliz. by Sir Henrie Walloppe knight vice treasurer of Ireland, Sir Valentyne Browne knight and others Her Majesties Commissioners. It was found with great probability that a ploughland contains in some parts of the Great County 80 acres, and in other parts 120: in Connelo it contains 80 acres, but in Poblebryen, 336 Clanwilliam the two Kenryes, 337 Cosmaye and mcBryan Ogonaghte 120 acres. In the small county every acre there is equal to 7 acres of the Great County and 20 acres make the ploughland there.

Whatever be the content of the ploughland only arable land is taken into account and neither in the Great or Small County are meadow pasture, woods, bogs, mountains or wastes included in estimating the ploughland.

It is not possible to arrive at greater certainty as to the acres unless 'the Lyne be layde over everie villadge hamlett and parcell' and the matter must be left to further consideration and time. 338

[4] An Ancient Book of the description of Ireland lately come to my hands (Chr: Peyton?) which touchs the measure of plouglands througout Ireland. 'And because I fynde yt written and sett downe longe agoe I accoumpte of yt a better probabyllytie of a trewthe than anye probable proofe shewed in the said Western Iourney or at anie tyme before or since that I can learn of viz:—

Ireland is 400 miles in length from Knockbrannan in the south, which is north west of Saincte Michellsmounte in Cornewall, unto Saincte Collmans Ilande alias the Curraghe in the north of Ulster which is west of Donfryse in Scotlande; and it is 200 miles in breadth from Dublin, which is south west of Chester, unto Crogh Patricke west of Gallwaye in Connaughte. This is proved by divers charts, so that Ireland should be more than England by 80 miles as on the south it is west of Saincte Michellsmounte which is in the western part of Cornewall and on the north it is west of Donfryse in Scotland.

Ireland is divided into 5 great portions according to the old extent viz. Leynster, Mounster, Connaghte, Mythe and Ulster.

Leynster contains 5 shires Kyllkenny, Wexforde Carlaghe, Kylldare and Dublin.

Mounster contains Ormonde, Desmonde and Thoomonde and 5 shires Waterford, Tipperare, Corcke, Lymericke and Kerry.

Connaghte contains 5 shires and Ulster 5 shires.

The portions above written are of the King's inheritance as lord of Ireland in substance besides the title of the crown that is to say the earldom of Ulster, whole lord of all Connaghte, lord of Mythe, lord of the fourth part of all Leinster and lord of the fourth part of Munster.

The said 5 portions contain 184 canthreds, otherwise called hundreds or baronies viz. Leinster 31, Connaught 30, Munster 70, Meath 18 and Ulster 35.

Ireland contains 5495 towns viz:— Leinster 930, Connaught 900, Munster 2100, Ulster 1050, and Meath 515.

Every canthred contains 160 plouglands, every town contains 8 ploughlands of arable land besides  p.35 the pasture of 300 cows and none of them shall anhere to the other.

The sum of the arable ploughlands is 53,080, besides rivers meadows pastures hills and woods.

Every ploughland contains 120 acres each containing 4 roods or perches in breadth and 40 perches in length. Every perch contains 12 feet of Powles feet and there are 3 feet in a yard.

If Ireland were reconciled to the king as England is and inhabited by Englishmen the King ought to have yearly, at 6s. 8d. per plougland, 22l. and 40 marks of common subsidy, the customs havens ports and fishings of old 1000 marks yearly; the rent of the old inheritance of the 5 provinces which was 22000 marks in the old Earl of Marche's days, and all other things as advowsons of churches wards marriages, &c;

[5] Pythagoras knew that the space where the Olympic games were kept was measured by Hercules who laid down a furlong there of 625 of his own feet. Comparing this with the similar furlongs laid down by his successors he discovered how much the foot of Hercules was greater than theirs, and computing the entire stature of Hercules from his statues according to his length of foot he knew how much the stature of Hercules exceeded that of the others.

[6] A prophecy concerning the state of Ireland as found by master Walter de Istelep on investigating the Irish Annals in 1317.

Now the Irish had four prophets Moling Breacan Patrick and Colmekyll whose books written in Irish are still extant among the Irish: all speaking of this conquest declare that from frequent conflicts and protracted struggle it shall be sullied by many murders through many future ages but they foretell (compromittunt) complete victory to the English people a very short time before the Day of Judgment; that the island of Ireland from sea to sea shall be totally subdued and built on with castles; that before that the English people shall be many times confounded and weakened by the issues of war in the island as is found in the testimony of Bractan, and that nearly all the English in Ireland will be confounded by a certain King who shall come out of the desert mountains of Patrick and break down a certain castle in the woods of Ophelay on a Sunday night [yet], by their assertion, they will always hold the eastern shore of the island withoug interruption.

[7] Ireland contains 180 canthreds thus divided

Leinster contains 31 canthreds 930 towns.
Connaught contains 21  339 canthreds 900 towns.
Munster contains 70 canthreds containing 2100 towns.
Ulster contains 35 canthreds containing 1050 towns.

Imprimis to enquire who were the occupiers of any lands reputed to have belonged to rebels and what estate they have whether by lease or at will.

Item what parishes towns baronies and shires they lie in.

Item what profits of victuals, money rents, corporal services or otherwise they yielded, what was the value of the victuals or services yearly, in what way the tenants commonly were burthened with coynie and Lyverie, Cossherie, Cuddye or such exactions and what ordinary charge they had yearly or quarterly of Galloglasse.

Item to inquire by estimation the quantity of the lands occupied, in ploughlands or acres and in cases doubtful of estimation to measure the tillage meadow and pasture: how much was used for tillage pasture and feeding and how much was accounted waste and bog.

 p.37

Item how many ploughs the tenants used, how many servants and garrans they used for the ploughs, how much corn grew therefrom in common years, of what kinds, how did they sell any spare corn and for what price.

Item how many cattle and beasts of all kinds were maintained in time of peace as horses mares, studderie, kyne, sheep, hogs, goats and the like.

Item what woods 353 of timber and other underwoods are on said lands and how near they lie to any sea port or navigable river.

Item what minerals are on said lands, whether they have been proved and what was the result.

Item how many people the tenants commonly kept in their households with meat and drink.

Item to describe the situation of the lands, and the castles or houses of strength with their lands, how they abut and bound, and upon whose lands; and to consult what castles or houses of strength should be reserved to the Queen either in respect of their situations for the government of the country and those to be in the custody of constables with reservation of victuals for the maintenance of the guard.

Item if the castles or houses be decayed to inquire how long they have been so and by whom and by what means they have been decayed or defaced and whether it is necessary to have them repaired and with what charge they may be made tenantable against soldiers.

Item to inquire of all Liberties and Royalties belonging to said castles seignories or manors, the services due by any other to same, and how such liberties have been granted; and although all liberties commonly are by misusage in subject's hands hurtful to the common weal yet to inquire whether the Queen may not do well to revive liberties of leets or law days without continuing the power to return writs or have the goods of felons or wrecks or the like.

Item to inquire what patronage of college parsonage or vicarage belonged to any rebel with the value thereof and who are incumbents or otherwise how the profits thereof are bestowed or used.

Item to measure the demesnes in the actual occupation of the rebels themselves and in their own manurance without taking yearly rents or profits therefrom; to reduce the acres to ploughlands according to the custom of the country; to value the acres rat {} 354 according to the local perch, since the measure of the perch is different in different places and so causes a difference in the quantity of acres and ploughlands, great consideration is necessary in valuing the lands to assess yearly rents.

Item to consider where the Queen grants the lands to her good subjects with reservation of rents, for years or three lives, or in special fee tail, it is to be remembered that for the first 5 or 7 years the rents should be small but to increase somewhat more at 10 or 14 years.

Item to inquire who have occupied and takes the profits of lands escheated to the Queen by the rebellion, and by what warranty the profits have been taken; if any had a custodiam thereof to require production of same and to enter it on the survey so that Her Majesty may receive what is due, and to do the like to those who have intruded so that they may be charged with the receipt of the profits.

Index of Persons and Places in Clancarthy Survey (Only)

Every attempt has been made to identify the place-names and the editor has acted on the principle that a faulty suggesion is better than none at all. Identifications given are modern equivalents of the name forms occurring in the text: the location and extent of any sixteenth-century denomination may be different from its present-day counterpart. Variants found in the text are given in their appropriate alphabetical position, with reference to the forms under which they are indexed. Unless otherwise indicated, all names are in Co. Kerry. All references are to numbered sections of the text. See Introduction, second last paragraph. Where identification is established or suggested, a parish reference in round brackets appears after the name form.

  1. See definition, in text, of the area of Desmond. It had formerly been a county in itself, though we find Sir William Herbert in 1588 recommending its incorporation in Kerry in the interests of security: Cal. S. P. Ire., 1586-88, p. 540. When Nicholas Browne wrote his tract on Munster in 1597, it had become part of Co. Kerry (J.C.H.A.S., XII [1906], 61), but it continued to be thought of for some time as a distinct region. An entry in Cal. S. P. Ire., 1603-06, p. 573, refers to the successful union of Kerry and Desmond. See also C. Litton Falkiner, Illustrations of Irish History, pp. 131-3. 🢀

  2. e.g., much material relating to the Desmond rebellion and the Munster plantation—MSS 600, 607, 614, 617, 627, etc.; Henry J. Todd, A Catalogue of the Archiepiscopal Manuscripts in the Library of Lambeth Palace, pp. 94-146. 🢀

A part of this work originally appeared in instalments in the Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, vols. V-VIII (1859-67), but the author not surprisingly came to the conclusion that the work was too extensive to publish sectionally in a periodical and that it should be made available in book form (ibid., VIII, 473). 🢀

  16. In a memorandum to the Irish Manuscripts Commission. The surveyor was aware of the antiquity of the system he was describing; cf. the phrase “tyme out of mynde” in sect. 16 of the text. 🢀

  17. It is dealt with in great, if disorderly, detail by Daniel MacCarthy Glas in his Life and Letters of Florence MacCarthy Reagh. The work draws heavily on the state papers of the period and includes numerous verbatim extracts from them. 🢀

  18. For the creation of the earldom, June 1565, see B.L., Cottonian MS Titus B XIII and Cal. Carew MSS, 1515-74, pp. 365-66. For his attitudes in 1568-69, see Richard Bagwell, Ireland under the Tudors, II, 151, 157. 161, 167-8, 186, 223, 233. His anti-government activities in 1579-80 were brief: Cal. Carew MSS, 1575-88, pp. 171. 173, 176, 257-9, 268-9. 🢀

  19. Cf. MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, pp. 23, 145. 🢀

  20. MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, p. 24; Charles Smith, Antient and Present State of the County of Kerry (hereafter referred to as History of Kerry), p. 40n. An Elizabethan deed of 1588, granting the mortgaged lands to the Brownes on the death of the earl of Clancarthy without male issue, was invalidated by the omission of the word “male”; see MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, pp. 156-7, and also Edward MacLysaght, ed., The Kenmare Manuscripts, pp. 459-60, 476. 🢀

  21. Tracts sent to Lord Burghley: the first tract given in MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, pp. 34-5, also in Cal. S. P. Ire., 1586-88, pp. 536-7. The author of Life and Letters attributes the tract to Sir Warham St. Leger, but the editor of the Calendar (pp. 538-9) shows clearly that the author was Sir William Herbert. 🢀

  22. Cf. Cal. S. P. Ire., 1592-96, p. 339. 🢀

  23. MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, p. 37; Cal. S. P. Ire., 1586-88, pp. 542-3. See Cal. Carew MSS, 1589-1600, pp. 516-17, for “the reasons that Florence McCartie allegeth to prove that the {} lands ought to descend to Ellen his wife”. 🢀

  24. See MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, pp. 51-4. 🢀

  25. Herbert to Walsingham, 27 December 1588, cited ibid., p. 54. 🢀

  26. This occurs in ibid., p. 34, and Cal. S. P. Ire., 1586-88, p. 536. This tract also contains a brief account of the traditional rights of MacCarthy Mór in Desmond, an account which it is of interest to compare with the more detailed returns of the survey. 🢀

  27. Cited in MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, p. 21. 🢀

  28. Bishop of Ardfert, Graye, Herbert and others to Privy Council, 12 February 1597, cited ibid., pp. 151-2. In Carew MS 635, Lambeth Palace Library, there is a document setting forth why “Florence MacCartie's wife should be heir to the earl of Clancare's lands”. 🢀

  29. Cf. the debate in council, 5 November 1597, where it was stated that although Munster was, for the moment, quiet, yet there, was information that “many are practised withal from the North to be of combination with the rest and to stir coals in Munster whereby the whole realm might be in a general uproar”, Cal. Carew MSS, 1589-1600, p. 273. Though in theory Desmond reverted to the crown because of the absence of legitimate male heirs (ibid., p. 215), in practice the crown had to proceed cautiously. 🢀

  30. [Nicholas Browne,] “Munster in A.D. 1597”, J.C.H.A.S., XII (1906), 54-68: in particular see pp. 61-5. Butler, Gleanings, p. 11n., states that the idea of a commission of survey was suggested by Browne in his report, but a careful reading of the memorandum fails to support Butler's suggestion. 🢀

  31. The text itself offers no clue as to authorship. The first person singular occurs only once, in sect. 25. Another piece of related material is “A note of all such lands as belonged to the Earl of Clancar and to whom he passed them”, B.L., Landsdowne MS III. 🢀

  32. Cal. S. P. Ire., 1596-97, pp. 330-1. The Privy Council's instructions do not name the members of the commission of survey, but that these included the president of Munster is clear from a royal warrant of 13 August 1598, given in MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, p. 155. 🢀

  33. Cal. S. P. Ire., 1598-99, p. 154; MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, p. 154. 🢀

  34. MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, p. 155. 🢀

  35. Ibid., pp. 182-4. A letter from the queen to Essex, 28 May 1599 (Cal. Carew MSS. 1589-1600, pp. 300-1) has the statement: “Of such lands of the said Earl's as Florence hath formerly sued for, and were to that end appointed to be surveyed by our President of Munster and others, we send you the survey(my italics). The letter states that the matter had been considered by Essex, St. Leger (master of the rolls) and Wilbraham, and goes on to outline the principal decisions arrived at. See also H.M.C., Salisbury MSS, pt. 8, p. 280, where a letter from the countess of Clancarthy to Sir Robert Cecil is noted under date 29 July 1598. In this it is stated that her suit for a third part of her husband's lands and rents was granted by the queen and Cecil but the solicitor of Ireland had said that she should have but a reasonable portion of her dower which in effect is a referment to the surveyors whose going thither is uncertain. 🢀

  36. The details are given in MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters. See Butler, Gleanings, for a discussion of the result of the survey and the subsequent history of the lordship, particularly pp. 68-72. 🢀

  37. Todd, Catalogue, pp. 135-6. 🢀

  38. The demesnes and the fishing rights are grouped around the manors of Castle-lough, Pallis and Ballycarbery, “thre of McCarty More's houses the which if any of the Clancartyes be in possession of, they will ever be in hope to recover the whole jurisdiction that McCarty More had in times past; {}those mannors to whom the cheif rents and sarvices (which are McCarty's greatest living) were alwayse due”: Nicholas Browne to Lord Burghley, 4 December 1594, quoted in MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, p. 124. 🢀

  39. See text, sects. 3, 6, 32, 62, 83 and notes thereon. Generally, place-names in both are identical, though some interesting differences occur in the case of the maps, e.g., in the Kerry map, Pentworth has the Irish—derived Ballino where Carew has Niwtown🢀

  40. The description in the H.M.C. Report is not, therefore, altogether accurate. 🢀

  41. Corresponding, in the printed text, to sects. 87 to 103 inclusive, as well as the last sentence in sect. 86. 🢀

  42. Cf. Butler, Gleanings, p. 22. 🢀

  43. Bél Inse proper is the harbour or channel on the east side. 🢀

  44. 46 See G. A. Hayes-McCoy, ed., Ulster and Other Irish Maps, c. 1600, intro., esp. pp. xi and xv; John Andrews, Ireland in Maps, pp. 5, 7. 🢀

  45. Compare the detail of these maps with Bartlett's maps in Hayes-McCoy, Ulster Maps. c. 1600🢀

  46. 48 This map (which distinguishes the baronies by different colours) shows Kerry north of the river Maine, that is, the former Geraldine territory, as well as Desmond proper. 🢀

  47. The maps may well have had the secondary purpose of adding to Elizabethan military knowledge of a remote part of Ireland. 🢀

  48. Hickson (Old Kerry Record), p. 255) in 1874 and Butler (Gleanings, p. II) in the early 1920s, were both very impressed by the condition of the maps. Unfortunately, it was not possible to arrange colour reproduction of the maps for the present volume. 🢀

  49. It should be noted that the limits of sixteenth-century baronies do not always correspond to those of today. From the maps it appears that Glanbehy, which is today in Iveragh, was at this time in Dunkerron. Attention must also be drawn to an apparent discrepancy in demarcation of lands between the separate Dariry map and that part of the Iveragh map which shows the same island. The former shows lands of the earl of Clancarthy which the latter assigns to Thomas Denny and to Domhnall MacCarthy, i.e., the latter map shows the position after the earl had assigned these lands, by mortgage or otherwise (see sects. 6 and 7 of the text). 🢀

  52. Hickson, Old Kerry Records. Miss Hickson's reference to the originals as belonging to Carew MS 635 is erroneous. She regrets (p. 256) “not being able to give” the maps of Magunihy and Dunkerron. Her Glanerought map was reproduced by the marquis of Lansdowne in his Glanerought and the Petty-Fitzmaurices, facing p. 31. When collating the name-forms of townlands in Iveragh, An Seabhac constantly cites “Carew Maps” for late sixteenth-century references: unfortunately, the references are really to the mangled name-versions in the Hickson maps and are therefore valueless. An Seabhac would have found the originals of very great use and interest:“Uí Ráthach. Ainmneacha na mBailte Fearainn sa Bharúntacht”, Béaloideas, XXIII (1954), 3-69. 🢀

The value of the white groat at 1 1/3 d is referred to by Fynes Moryson, Itinerary, II, 139: “Also they had white groats which were coyned for four pence but of such base allay as nine of them were given for an English shilling.” 🢀

  65. Quoted in MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, p. 220. The same definition is given in John Dymmok, A Treaties of Ireland, Tracts relating to Ireland, II (1843), 8. In the Dymmok treatise (written about 1599) “spears” is given as “spares” or “sparres” (= two men). 🢀

  66. Cal. Carew MSS. 1589-1600, p. 72. This is the definition given by Pauline Henley, 'Notes on Irish Words in Spenser's Viewe of Ireland', J.C.H.A.S., LVII (1952), 124. Miss Henley mentions the existence of other variants, sorehon, sorehim or sorehin . See also definition in James Ware's De Hibernia et Antiquitatibus Disquisitiones, Tracts and Treatises, Ireland, I, 209: “Sorohen Taxatio erat quater in anno imposita libere tenentibus {} pro victu, hospitio et stipendiis dictorum militum.” 🢀

  67. Cf. Ware's Antiquities where “Cuddies” are equated with coenae nocturnae. In the list of exactions by the earl of Desmond, Cal. Carew MSS. 1589-1600, p. 72, “Cuddy” is given as “a charge of meals, meat and drink the time he hath his people in coshery”. The latter term, in turn, is explained as “a charge of the earl's people for lodging 40, 60 or 100 together under one roof.” Frequent references to “Cuddihies” (“a night's supper”) occur in a deed of appointment by MacCarthy Mór in 1584, nominating Manus Oge O Rourke as “weareman and marshalle of all my houses”: Transactions R.I.A., XV (1828), 73-75. 🢀

In Cal. Carew MSS, 1589-1600, p. 72, “Kearnety” is explained as “a charge of 3s . 4d . or 4s . upon a plowland towards the maintenance of the Earl's kerne, 100, 200 or 300 men, more or less”. 🢀

  91. In the summer of 1580 Edmond Fenton was with the combined forces of Pelham and Ormond when they camped between Pallis and Dunloe. Fenton, with an eye for scenery unusual at the period, admired the beauty of the Killarney district, but remarked that the castle called the Palace was “a name very unfit for so beggarly a building, not answerable to a mean farmer's house in England, and his entertainment much like to his dwelling”.

Muckross was apparently part of Oirbhealach but eventually became the dominant name. It is of interest that the survey maps show only Erelagh at the site of the famous abbey. 🢀

  109. The acquisition of land interests by the urban business classes was a feature of the period. The Meagh family was prominent in the civic life of Cork at this time, several of that name being listed by Caulfield as mayors and bailiffs, e.g., James Meagh, mayor in 1595. Richard Caulfield, Council Book of the Corporation of Cork, pp. 1171-2. See also Cal. S. P. Ire., 1586-88, pp. 93-6, 206, 252, 385, for references to James Myaghe who describes himself as “citizen of Cork” and “merchant "Ventourer"”. He was sheriff of Desmond in the 1580s and an adviser of the earl of Clancarthy. This may well be the same person as the James Meaugh in the text and the Cork mayor of that name in 1595. 🢀

  124. It has been decided to leave val . in the contracted form in which it occurs throughout the MS as the extension is uncertain. Clearly some form of the verb valeo (in the sense of being “worth”) is in question: the present participle (valens, valentes) is most likely as it would seem to fit most cases where it is used. Sometimes the English “valued” would appear to be suitable. 🢀

  131. It should be noted that here and elsewhere in the survey the description “river of Canmara” applies only to the inner estuary, while the “bay of Dunkerran” describes the outer estuary, the point of division being approximately the islands today called Rossmore and Ormond (cf. the general Kerry map and the map of Glanerought barony. Today, the term “Kenmare River” applies to the whole estuary, the description “bay of Dunkerran” has become obsolete and the distinction here noted no longer exists. The former restricted use of “Canmarra ” (ceann mara, “head of the sea”) was etymologically more correct. 🢀

  132. There never were tin deposits in the area, but lead mines were in production in the Kenmare district as late as the mid-nineteenth century: Robert Kane, Industrial Resources of Ireland, p. 209. The Civil Survey, X, 84, mentions the existence of silver and iron mines in Glanerought barony. For the history of mining generally in the barony, see Marquis of Lansdowne, Glanerought, ch. 2, “Petty's Ironworks”; also Journal or the Geological Society of Dublin, VI (1854), 206-17. See also references to the subject in MacLysaght, Kenmare MSS, pp. 135, 402-03, 419, 419n. 🢀

  133. Cf. O.E.D.: “a large shortwinged hawk”. Irish hawks were highly prized in England before fire guns were used, so that where nests existed they were recorded on surveys. In Cal. S. P. Ire., 1586-88, p. 568, there is a mention of a “goshawke” being sent as a present by Sir Wm. Herbert to Sir Francis Walsingham. For another interesting reference to goshawks as presents, see Cal. Carew MSS, 1589-1600, p. 446. For the popularity of Irish hawks in Tudor times, see Richard Butler's notes on John Dymmok's “Treatice”. The existence of nests is also noted in the Peyton and Desmond surveys of Co. Limerick: see Index s.v. “Goshawks”. 🢀

  145. Probably the eastern portion of the mod. Termons (Dromod par.) near Waterville. The endings -irrah here and -rragh in the Iveragh map are attempts at representing the Irish word for “east” or “eastern”. An Seabhac's derivation of Tearmon 'ig Craith (“Uí Ráthach”, p. 46) is based on the erroneous Termonygrah reading of the Hickson map. 🢀

  178. The comparative lack of detail here (72-78) and below (110-117) on the Beara and Bantry country may be due, as Butler (Gleanings, p. 14) points out, to the fact that the authorities were already sufficiently well informed on the position there. In 1565, in connection with the creation of the earldom of Clancarthy, there was drawn up a detailed statement of the services and duties of O'Sullivan Beare to MacCarthy Mór: see Cal. Carew MSS. 1515-74, p. 366, and Butler, Gleanings, pp. 28-9. Again, a protracted succession dispute in Beara and Bantry in the 1580s and 1590s received intensive government investigation, so that much information on the lordship became available (ibid., pp. 31-8, and Cal. S. P. Ire.. 1586-88, pp. 363-5, where there is an abstract of an account of land division within the lordship as well as a reference to a map of O'Sullivan's country). 🢀

  186. That part of the Sliabh Luachra area near the Cork border. 🢀

  187. Since the paragraph mentions only 8 s, the 10 s 8 d may possibly include Canebeg at 1/4 a quarter. The discrepancy puzzled Butler (Gleanings, p. 51, n. 5). 🢀

  188. Butler's excerpts from the MS (Gleanings, p. 51) dealing with the Coshmang lands are inaccurate in a number of respects. He admits he found the survey difficult to read at this point. “Coshmang” means literally the land by the Maine River but historically it signified a long frontier district of Desmond, from the Cork border to Castlemaine. 🢀

  193. Though not identified, this district lay in one of the two projecting sections of Magunihy north of the river Maine (see second sentence in this section), i.e., part of mod. Currans par. or mod. Molahiffe par.—in both of which there are “Farrans”. 🢀

  194. Sic MS: recte Killaha, as in Petworth. This is mod. Killagha or Kilcolman in Kilcolman parish, the site of a well-known religious house, shown clearly in the Magunihy map as a large roofed building and already mentioned in sect. 44 above. The name should not be confused with Killaha townland in Killaha parish, in the south-east of Magunihy. 🢀

  195. fishings Petworth. 🢀

  196. See sect. 62, n. 2. 🢀

  197. These lands are unspecified probably because, as Butler points out (Gleanings, p. 74), they were confiscated lands and, as such, already surveyed. This is also true of the Coshmang lands and the Clan Donnell Roe lands above. 🢀

  203. In Petworth, these words appear at the end of a verso folio (unnumbered). The next folio (recto) begins The quarter of Careogerrane (see sect. 104) so that about two and a half folios of material are missing in Petworth. 🢀

  208. Mod. Culleeny (Kilbonane par.). In place-names in the survey, the sound “ee” is sometimes represented by “i”, as in Killi ne. 🢀

  209. In the calculations that follow, the half ploughland is ignored. 🢀

  210. In 1580 Edward Fenton was interested in the report that there were large mussels containing pearls to be found in Lough Leane (Cal. S. P. Ire., 1574-85, p. 232). In 1589 Sir Warham St. Leger informed Burghley that there was “great store of orient pearls in the lower lake at Killarney”(Cal. S. P. Ire., 1588-92, p.125; MacCarthy Glas, Life and Letters, p. 62). See sect. 101. 🢀

  223. The calculation here is on the basis of four quarters, not five. 🢀

  224. Both Glencar and Glanbehy (next section) are today in Iveragh barony. Glencar is the southern part of Glanbehy parish. An Seabhac points out that whereas Glencar comes from “Gleann Carthaigh”, Lough Caragh and the river Caragh are not etymologically connected with the MacCarthy surname at all, being probably derived from carthach, “rocky” (“Uí Ráthach”, pp. 57, 60). 🢀

  234. Conceivably Slugktmcrury: Slughtmcrury Petworth. MS has Slught-Murry mcrury, with Murry crossed out. 🢀

  235. Bórd Eoghain Fhinn was the traditional description of the coastal region between Sneem and Caherdaniel. 🢀

  236. Very probably mod. Garranebane and Garranearagh, adjoining townlands in Caher parish. 🢀

  237. The modern Kilcoman in Caher parish must formerly have had two sections. B.S.D. has Kilcoman South. 🢀

  238. The river Deelis flows through Dellis td. to the sea at Cahersiveen. It was suggested to me locally that this river may have once been known as “Douglas”. 🢀

  246. “Cowlaah, Eirye, Cahercwyn, and Kilcattyeren” are described as “the land of the O'Linshiganes” in Cal. Pat. Rolls James I, An. 9, p. 205, par. xxviii. They are mod. Coulagh, Eyeries, Caherkeen and Kilcatherine, all in Kilcatherine parish, in Bear barony. See Dinnseanchas, 5, No. 2, pp 30, 32, 40. 🢀

  247. Cf. “Ballydonogane” in Cal. Pat. Rolls James I, An. 9, p. 205, par. xxviii: probably mod. Ballydonegan in the parish of Kilnamanagh. 🢀

  248. Cf. “Killmeanach”, ibid. This may be the parish name, Kilnamanagh, but it is likely that it was also the name of a townland formerly. Killvana was the name of a glebe field in the locality. 🢀

  249. Cnoc na nGamhar nGeal. Knockgour (not a townland) is situated in the Beara peninsula at the junction of the townlands of Coom, Knockroe West (parish of Kilnamanagh) and Knockoura (parish of Killaconenagh), O.S. 114. See Dinnseanchas, I, no. 2, p. 43. 🢀

  253. Here and in subsequent paragraphs, read s half face. 🢀

  254. By multiplication, five marks half face are equal to £4 8s 8d 2 wh. gr. (see intro. p. 00). Here, and in the three sections that follow, the scribe omits the two white groats. 🢀

  260. Cf. Sir William Herbert's tracts on Munster, Cal. S. P. Ire., 1586-88, pp. 534-5, where it is stated that the countries of MacDonogh, O'Callaghan, MacAunlief (sic) and O'Keefe were “to find him for a certain time, when he cometh to their countries”. 🢀

  264. The anonymous author of “Ancient Irish Income” in U.J.A., IV (1856), 242, regards this total revenue as “inconsiderable”. Butler however does not agree (Gleanings, p. 65). 🢀

  266. '. . . a formidable bundle of parchments', says Canon Begley: John Begley, The Diocese of Limerick in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries, p. 96. Begley claimed (ibid., p. 97n) that he had 'copies of all these documents'. If he means copies of the originals, they were certainly not among the Begley papers acquired by the National Library of Ireland after his death. Nevertheless, Begley's chapter on 'The Survey, Confiscation and Plantation, of the Desmond Estate' (pp. 96-153) is a useful companion to the surveys. 🢀

  270. There is another copy in the Royal Irish Academy. 🢀

  271. An Seabhac, Tríocha-Chéad Chorca Dhuibhne, p. xxi, says that the calendar (or, as he erroneously describes it, the translation into English) was made for Hussey, 'fear a bhí ainmneamhail 'na land-agent i gCiarraighe i ndeireadh na haoise seo caite'. 🢀

  272. See P.R.I. Rep. D.K. 55, p. 11, where presentation is recorded. 🢀

  273. Doncha Ó Conchúir, Baile 'n Fhirteirigh, who is keenly interested in the Kerry portion of the Desmond Survey, has suggested to me that the numerals in question refefi, not to footnotes, but to numbered sections of barony maps. For permission to examine the late Mr. Byrne's papers, I am indebted to his daughter, Miss Margaret Alice Byrne. 🢀

  274. For a comparison of the two calendars? see below. 🢀

  275. An Seabhac's Tríocha-Chéad Chorca Dhuibhne would be of invaluable assistance in this task. 🢀

  276. The originals of the inquisitions of escheat (taken in counties Cork, Limerick, Kerry and Tipperary after the Desmond rebellion) perished in the 1922 destruction of the P.R.O.I., but calendars had been made by the record commissioners of 1810-30. These calendars are short and inadequate—there are better abstracts in T.C.D. MS F.4.25, and a translation made from the original inquisition relating to Kerry was printed in the Kerry Archaeological Magazine, no. 4 (April 1910), pp. 213-26, and no. 5 (October 1910), pp. 263-79, under the title 'lnquisition of 1584'. W. M. Hennessy seems to have been mainly responsible for the presentation and editing. 🢀

  277. While this introduction was with the printers, it was arranged that supplementary Desmond Survey material (including the Kerry Desmond Survey), should be edited by Mr. K.W. Nicholls and Mr Donncha Ó Conchúir, and should appear in the present volume. 🢀

  401. Recte Ballinwreley 🢀

  402. Cf. Robert Stroude's seignory— Fiant 5781— known as Beawliewe or Beauly, which Begley, (Limerick, p. 198) suggests may be a corruption of Balleoniffe td. The lands are in the Corcomohide-Dromcolliher area. 🢀

  403. For his attitude on Desmond's attainder in the parliament of 1585-86, see ibid., p. 130 🢀

  404. ? Trean Meane— 'middle third', ie., of Tawnagh, which Begley, (Limerick, p. 101) says was co-extensive with Mahoonagh. The 'barony manor and castle of Meane alias Mahownaghe' was Henry Oughtred's seignory: Fiant 5782. The frustrations suffered by this Southampton merchant from Tudor bureaucracy, as he attempted to take up his seignory, are described by Quinn, 'Munster Plantation', pp 25-7. 🢀

  413. An Chaoill Mhór, the 'great wood' near Killmallock in the Cork-Limerick border area. This was the area of the Cuffs Wood seignory granted to Hugh Cuffe (Fiant: 5066). The Irish name-form is represented by mod. Orrey and Kilmore bar. 🢀

  414. Begley, (Limerick, p. 104) erroneously gives Michael. 🢀

  415. It is difficult to distinguish between the various Kilcolmans referred to in the text. The reference here seems to be to the tds. of Kilcolman E. and W., Rathkeale par., and not to mod. Kilcolman par. which is in Shanid bar. 🢀

  421. Begley, (Limerick, p. 108), in one of his few identifications, equates Kyllcroye with Kilcruaig, 'which has supplanted Ballinbrowne as a townland'. But Kilcruaig is in Kilflyn par., nowhere near Clonelty, and Ballinbrowne clearly corresponds to mod. Ballybrown (Clonelty par.) 🢀

  422. Almost certainly Riddlestown, which adjoins Cloghanarold. 🢀

  423. Calendarist omitted to close quotation marks, presumably at this point. 🢀

  447. = Graigoor? Graigoor (Kilbradran par.) adjoins Ballynisky (Ballynuskeye, sect. 164). 🢀

  448. Recte Wall: discrepancy noticed by calendarist. 🢀

  454. The italicized figures (122-143d) inserted by the present editor from here to sect. 210 are those of the folio numbers of that part of the survey transcribed (MS 2759) by Tenison Groves (see introduction). Their position here indicates approximately the matter covered by each successive folio (recto and dorso), and they serve to illustrate the compression of the calendar as well as the elaborate length of the original material. 🢀

  456. Calendarist's insertion. 🢀

  457. Calendarist's insertion. 🢀

  464. Ballymackaffe MS 2759: clearly a misreading. 🢀
