Based on the knowledge and evidence of “the most able and ancient inhabitants of the country” the Civil Survey was a descriptive record of the land and of its owners in 1640. Written down in the course of the years 1654-56 from the testimony of juries representative of Gael and Norman, the survey set forth every estate of every proprietor of land in twenty-seven Irish counties. Ancestral tenures were recorded as well as titles by patent from the Crown. Abundantly rich in place-names and in information regarding Irish families, the Civil Survey was further distinguished by separate returns of Church lands, Crown lands, and Tithes.
