Landlords, Tenants, Famine: The Business of an Irish Land Agency in the 1840s

Front Cover
University College Dublin Press, 2006 - History - 380 pages
Desmond Norton's fascinating study of the relationships between landlords and tenants in Ireland during the Great Famine period of the 1840s is principally based on a large uncatalogued archive in private ownership of the Stewart & Kincaid land agents. Much of the information from this unique resource is being published for the first time. Norton challenges existing assumptions about landlord-tenant relations, emigration, and land improvement during the famine decade.
