County Antrim

Civil Parish list

 

Civil Parish Antrim – I wonder, how many know the names of each civil parish in Co. Antrim?  Here is a list of names.  Please remember some of these spellings are not exactly as they are now.

‘Search Page’  the IrlAtlas Townland Search form.

The web page to which you are being directed above is hosted by the Leitrim Roscommon Genealogy web site.  The book from which the list of placenames was created was based on the townlands listed in the Irish 1851 census and a man who we all knew as John Broderick a.k.a. Sean Ruad (R.I.P.) was responsible for having the whole book typed up by helpful individuals over a number of years.  This book the ‘General Alphabetical Index to the Townlands and Towns, Parishes & Baronies of Ireland’, which was printed by Alexander Thom & Co. of Dublin, gives you the size of a townland, the barony that the townland was in, the name of the civil parish, and the name of the Poor Law Union.  If you see a civil parish name here and you are interested in the townlands in that civil parish, then please go to the search page, put in the name of the civil parish and the county and you will be given a list of the names of townlands in that parish in 1851.  Please note, townland spellings may have changed, some of the townlands may have disappeared.

The ‘civil’ parish and the Roman Catholic parish are NOT the same group of townlands They are separate entities in relation to genealogical research.  Catholics can or could live in one civil parish and be members of a relgious parish with a different name.  Please consult the list of Roman Catholic parishes of Co. Antrim or the separate list for Belfast city if you have Catholic ancestry.

A second web site that you could visit it the Ordnance Survey of Ireland which according to users has “quite advanced mapping tools and the link redirects to an historical layering, as over time, boundaries for the various borders for administrative divisions have changed. The site is especially useful when cross referencing with historical documents.”
