Creagh Estate Records
This database contains tenant records for the Wrixon-Becher estate at Creagh. The surviving records cover the tenants of the estate from 1803 to 1919. They cover 86 townlands in the greater Skibbereen area, with the majority from the Creagh and Tullagh parishes, including Sherkin and Cape Clear islands.
The tenancy records record the name and townland of the occupant, the tenancy dates, the amount of rent and how it was paid and any miscellaneous comments that are given. Some comments are ambiguous but all are transcribed for reference purposes but there is no additional information available other than what is included in the database.
Thanks to the Donnelly family, the current owners of the estate, for allowing us transcribe these records and making them available to the public for the first time.
