Title: Griffith's valuation - shared parcels?
Post by: oldohiohome on Saturday 09 February 19 17:45 GMT (UK)
I have found two parcels bracketed together on Griffith's Valuation of Ballyneddan Townland, Kilbroney Parish, Co. Down, and also in the first three Revision Books, although the tenants' names are different. This persists in the Revision Books even when one of the tenants dies and is replaced.

Does anyone know for sure what this means, or can take a guess? My guess is they split the rent, as shown on Griffith's - I will attach the whole image. And in the first book, which won't show in the image.

Was this common, were the people necessarily related or what?

I will attach the first Valuation Revision Book screenshot to the next post.

Thank you. That was the first time I've seen where two people were jointly responsible for one piece of land. I couldn't picture a landlord or tenants agreeing to anything like that today, so I was a bit mystified.

Have to disagree. "Tenants in common" is a standard option on many a contract I have seen.

Can be tenants in common in equal shares or tenants in common in unequal shares.  A different type of tenancy from  joint tenants.
