PRONI Valuation books

We know the McIlroys are living in Ballywilliam in 1911, so I searched the valuation books and noted a Marion McIlroy as the tenant from 1905

The landlord appears to be a Michael DELACHEROIS

The public records office might include some information about the McIlroys as tenents

Especially this
 D2489/10
 
Level :  Item

Title :  Bundle of documents relating to the Delacherois
 
Dates :  1836-1926
 
Description :  Bundle of documents relating to the Delacherois family, The Manor House, Donaghadee, Co. Down. The documents include title deeds and leases, between the Delacherois family and various other individuals for properties in Donaghadee.


As John McIlroy was a rent agent, estate papers might be significant for finding information on him -- but you have to know who he worked for first
