Lewis’s Topographical Dictonary 1837

Samuel Lewis’s Topograhical Dictionary can be found online at Library Ireland.

Lewis’s Topographical Dictionary is very useful for a description of parishes in Ireland in 1837. Notables who had “seats” are listed too. There is also a list of subscribers to the book which is searchable alphabetically by surname. It is worth noting that Samuel Lewis originally produced maps to go with the counties as well.

The Library Ireland website also has other useful genealogical information such as 1862 Dublin street directory.
