The Royal Dublin Society was founded in 1731 for “Improving Husbandry, Manufactures, and other useful Arts and Sciences”. One of its greatest achievements was the publication of the statistical surveys for each of the counties of Ireland. The work thoroughly surveys the topography of the county, its geology, mines, quarries; its rivers, navigations, fish and fisheries; bogs and their reclamation; its agriculture ... markets, farming methods ... tenure and rents, population, towns and their developments ... use of spirits; the schools, manufacturing industry, roads and bridges, etc. Alexander Ramsay is listed in the John Watson Stewart’s The Gentleman’s and Citizen’s Almanack of the period as a Dyer trading out of Cow-parlour, 22 N. Anne-Street, Dublin.
