Place names mentioned in poor law examinations
« on: Monday 11 September 17 20:42 BST (UK) »
Dear all,

I would be really grateful with some assistance in identifying the Irish placenames and their locations mentioned in the attached poor law examination record (taken in Bethnal Green in 1852), for example is the Munydough of the text Moneyduff?

Many thanks for any assistance,

Spider

Thank you Hallmark - I was wondering whether the county that Scrubby was in was Kavern and therefore Cavan.

Thank you Hallmark, that has been really helpful!  Irish records are a bit of a mystery to me, so shall enjoy the learning curve!!
