Kelly, John and Family



Griffith’s Valuation

In Griffith’s Valuation, the total area of the townland of Cregboy was 676a (acres), 0r (rood) and 8p (perches) with a land value of £196 (pounds) 6s (shillings) and 0d (pence). Value of Buildings was £26 1s and 0d. Total valuation of £222 6s 0d.



The description of John Kelly’s tenement was that of a land area of 9 acres, 3 rood and 38 perches with a monetary value of £2 and 10 shillings.  There was no house attached to this tenement, which suggests that his was additional to John Kelly’s land and his house is at some other location. This gave a total to Patrick’s tenement value of £2 and 18 shillings.
