McAndrew Surname in Ireland
A name-by-name transcription of the Griffith
Valuation for Erris Barony in County Mayo is
available online here.
Roughly one third of all McAndrew listings in
the Griffith Valuation of Ireland can be
found in this transcription. The transcription
includes the name of the individual along
with the townland in which they owned or
rented land. This is crucial information for
Irish genealogy in that the individual's
location must be known at the townland level
before one can know which church registers to
access for baptism, marriage, and burial records.
A detailed map of the area of
the Barony of Erris is available here.
The map can be of immense value in locating
specific townlands in Kilcommon
and Kilmore civil parishes.
