1828 Irish Tithe Applotment Books Entry
« on: Saturday 07 November 20 18:04 GMT (UK) »
I have been trying to figure out the exact name here in this entry in the Tithe Applotment Books in Ireland.
Place: Ballybroder, Durrow Parish, Co. Westmeath (but listed under King's Co.)
Time: 1828

Context: I have been investigating the possibility that my McLain ancestors in this area were an extreme anglicization of O'Laineaghain or O'Laineaghnain, an ecclesiastical family around Durrow abbey, associated with the Mageoghegans.  This surname had another extreme case of anglicization to Lynan and Lynam (an attempt to pass as Leinster English Linehams). There are two Lynam farms above this surname, which at first glance looks like "McLuire" but could very well be McLuine, McLeein(e), etc.  It looks like it was either written more hastily or by a different person, as the "L" character is a little different.

Link to the actual record: http://titheapplotmentbooks.nationalarchives.ie/reels/tab//004587437/004587437_00307.pdf  You can manually go forward or backward in this parishes pages via the link (i.e. changing 307.pdf to 306 or 308 etc.)

Thank you for any insight!

It is transcribed as McLuire and looks like that - ‘Reps of McLuire’ so it adds to the difficulty that there is no first name to check other records.
Griffiths Valuation shows David McGuire in that townland and another land record David Maguire. I post these names for the similarity.

I think it says rep with letter at the top ( meaning representative) of MCLaine but the a has missed its upper half making it look like a u .see similar "a " misformed in surname beginning Cappa..... A few names above.

Thanks everyone for your input. Lola, I've been slowly able to put together a pre-famine farming cluster with the tithe applotment books. However theres no soundex searches, I definitely recommend a lot of wildcards (*)
