The Ordnance Survey Memoirs of Ireland are a uniquely detailed source for the history of the northern half of Ireland immediately before the Great Famine. They were written in the 1830s to accompany the 6" Ordnance Survey maps, but with one exception were not published at the time. In this new edition they act as a nineteenth-century Domesday book and are essential to the understanding of the cultural heritage of our communities. The Memoirs document the landscape and situation, buildings and antiquities, land-holdings and population, employment and livelihood of the parishes.
Ordnance Survey Memoirs of Ireland, Vol 4: County Fermanagh I, 1834-35 contains the Memoirs for Enniskillen and 8 parishes of Upper Lough Erne. They present a fascinating portrait of Enniskillen and the people of the surrounding localities, document the history of the Williamite campaigns and describe in the unique detail the everyday life of the farmers and fishermen of the district. Other centres covered include Newtownbutler, Lisnaskea, Tempo, Maguiresbridge and Brookeborough.
