The Hearth Tax was introduced to Ireland in 1662. Arranged by county, parish and, usually, townland, the Hearth Money Rolls list the names of householders who were liable to pay tax at the rate of two shillings on every hearth or fireplace they had. Some people were exempt from the tax and others managed to evade paying it. Persons od poor means or of limited property did not have to. This means that the lists are not a complete record of householders in a townland.

This era, 50 years on from the defeat of the Gaelic Chieftains of the North and in the aftermath of the 1641 rebellion was a time of great change in Ireland. The surnames reflect those of the Catholic Irish and those  relatively recently arrived in Ireland from England and Scotland.

An interesting aspect of the of the Irish Catholic names is the diversity of Gaelic first names many unfamiliar today.

Gaelic First names:

Donohy   = Donnchadh

Cuin = Conn

Loughlin = Lochlainn

Phillomy = Feidhlimidh

Knogher (Mór= Big) = Conchúir

Manus = Mánas

Art = Art

Murt = Muircheartach

Owin = Eoghan

Daniel (Bane = Bán = White[haired])

Cullow = Cú Uladh

Ever = Eimhear

Teige = Tadhg

Toole = Tuathal

Cormuck – Cormac

Surnames:

Some versions local  Irish surnames have a different English language version than they have today: The example show how many ( most)  Gaelic names became anglicised through the years

Ó Cluasaigh = O’Closs = Close

Ó Gráinne  = Cranny = Grant

Mac Cuinn = McQuonne = Quinn

Mac an Bheatha = McWagh = McVeigh

Ó Murrin = Ó Mearáin = Marrion
