 Notes;

· Tummery is pronounced Chummery, more like Tchummery

· Barrett is pronounced Bar-it.

· Area is in acres - roods - perches

1. Acre: Originally, the amount plowed by a yoke of oxen in a day, and hence very variable. Legally, the area of a piece 40 poles long by 4 broad; that is 160 square rods (43,560 square feet).

2. Rood: one-fourth of an acre; or 40 square rods; 10,890 square feet


3. Perch: one rod; 5.5 yards; 16.5 feet. One square perch equals 1 square rod, or 272.25 square feet

· Rateable Annual Valuation of Land - cited in Pounds - Shillings - Pence


12 pence to the shilling

tuppence

thruppence

half crown

20 shillings to the pound

21 shillings to the "guinea"


· Just about everyone is listed as having and office. Do they work at home? Today a home office is a tax right off. Office (off.) & land (Office means out-building or maybe privy). An Office is an ‘Out-House’


 · Denis Barrett B1810 is the father of Mary Barrett and She is the wife of Thomas McQuaid B1835. Descendants of Dennis, through his son John, still live in Tummery today.


 · Partick McQuaid Map Ref # 60, can be found on another Ancestry tree. He was born Abt 1820. He could be the Brother or cousin to Thomas McQuaid B1812. Descendants of Patrick, through his son Patrick, still live in Tummery today.


 · Own McQuaid, Map Ref 11 a,b &c. I have no info on him.


 · There were 62 Plots of land in Tummery in 1860. Two of the Plots were for the National Schools. Plot 2B for Females & Plot 62b for Males. Of the remaining 60 plots. 4 were subdivided with 2 different renters. Thus there were 64 family groups living in Tummery in 1860.

Rosalie, Please leave me your E-mail address,so I can respond. Need some Dates, of arrival. Where did they live in the US? Names 1st and last of your GGrand Parents and Grandparents.You are in luck, with a 1920's arrival of your Grandmother, the 1901 & 1911 Census records are on line. Also Civil Registration of birth started in 1864, so their birth, marriage and death will be recorded.
