  Research Notes:

FREEHOLD LAND IN COUNTY ARMAGH

"Freeholders' records are lists of people entitled to vote, or of people who voted, at elections. A freeholder was a man who owned his land outright (in fee) or who held it by lease which could be for one or more lives (for example, his own life or for the lives of other people named in the lease). From 1727 to 1793 only Protestants with a freehold worth at least 40 shillings a year were legally permitted to vote. Between 1793 and 1829 both Protestants and Catholics with 40 shilling freeholds could vote, but in 1829 the franchise level was increased to 10 pounds, so 40 shilling freeholders were no longer allowed to vote."

Thus begins the introduction on the PRONI web site to Freeholders' Records Archives that can be searched now by members of the public online. Freeholders' records provide a range of information about land ownership in Northern Ireland, and are especially valuable before 1840. 2
