Framework of Sources Essay on Story of Swords, 1800--1950
For the election which made the Act of Union a fact of life, and in which Swords played a part, I will try to access the Poll Book for the district. (As yet I don't know where to look for this, would be glad of guidance)
St Columba's Registry of Deeds
Swords castle Land Registry
Swords House Church of Ireland Records and Archives
Swords Village Architectural Archives (especially for Swords House)
St Colmcille's Catholic Church Records.
Tenants/residents of Griffith's Valuations.
Census 1841 , 1901 ,1911
and later relevant census
Church records (all churches.)
School Records (all schools)
Education. School Registers
National Archives Education Section.
Townlands in the Townland valuation records
immediate vicinity John O'Donovan's Placename records
I will also collect all relevant maps, as far as possible.
My chief Secondary Source will be Dalton's History of North County Dublin.
Hope this is the sort of thing you are looking for!
