A unique Census Substitute for Belmullet and Erris in 1846. This Freeholders List can provide useful information about those who held enough land or a valuable shop that qualified them to have a vote. While the smaller tenant farmers who suffered most during the Great Famine won't appear on this list, there may be a few surprises included here. In addition to farmers, the parish priest, the local butcher and a number of other merchants/shop-keepers are mentioned here. Can you find your ancestor's name below?
