Scope and Content: Rentals of the estate of the Earl of Bandon, from Bandon Estate Office. These have been arranged into two groupings (U137/RL/A/1-29; U137/RL/A/30-47). Items 1-20 are rentals based on tenants' names, generally noting name, rent, a description of the holding, terms of lease, and details of rent owed and paid. These are arranged chronologically. Within this grouping, items 21-29 are 'rough' rentals, also based on tenants' names, but generally adding only the name of the denomination and a record of rent and arrears. Items 30-47 are rentals based on townlands and denominations. These generally note the denomination name, tenants' names, area, and rent, although some do not include tenants' names. Differences in format and information contained are noted in item-level descriptions.
