Griffiths Evaluation - more detail

This is a breakdown of the rateable annual value of the various occupiers of the townland of Lurgan in 1854. It is worth noting that there are two people with the surname Stones living in Lurgan, John and Timothy. The main lessor of land in Lurgan is Joseph Gough who does not appear to occupy buildings on any of the land but does pay rates on sections of bog which we know has it's own limited value for cutting turf for fuel locally (Offaly contains a large part of the Bog of Allen in Ireland).

Timothy Stones, whom I believe to be my wife and therefore my children's direct ancestor, also appears to lease his land from Joseph Gough, though he sub-leases it to smaller tenants. After Robert Low, Timothy Stones appears to be the most affluent farmer in Lurgan. We can perhaps speculate that John Stones was his brother.
