Level : item Title: Rental (Synge Estate) Extent: 209 folios and 43 pp Scope and Content:

Rental recording denomination, tenant's name, landlord, folio, and payments due and received. Beneath, there are fields for recording record number, poor law valuation, original rent, judicial rent, a date when rent and lease fixed. In a 'Remarks' field, the area of the holding, valuation details, and events such as ejectments, are noted. Arrears and half year's rents are noted, and at the end reference is made to any later folio regarding the same holding. The 'Folio' field notes folio number in 'old ledger' or an earlier folio in this volume relating to the same holding.Throughout, the landlord's name is Sir F Synge, Bart. The properties are largely in east Cork (eg, Ballymacoda, Lislee Court, Agha). From p211 on, the volume notes other accounts of Synge, eg (p211-12), with the Irish Land Commission, (pp217-18) with Cork Defense Union, (pp221-22) Church of Ireland. [No reference to Doherty, although notes in red, in remarks, or confirming totals, seem to be initialled by an estate agent. This type of rental seems to have been used to document the setting of judicial and fixed rents, perhaps in the context of the Irish Land Commission and land acts. See U137/RL/B/011].
