List of Freeholders Dublin 1831

‘Forty shilling freeholders’ owned or rented land of, or above, that value. Having land of this value allowed these people to vote up to 1829 when the Catholic Relief Act raised the sum. Numerous lists for different counties and different years have been produced with the names below coming from an 1831 list for Dublin. [1]
