Payment of tithes was introduced into the Catholic Church more than a thousand years ago arousing resentment, debate and resistance among those who were supposed to pay them. With the emergence of... More > the Church of England and its Irish equivalent, the Church of Ireland, the tax was streamlined to the extent that it became a valuable source of income for the clergy and wealthy individuals (impropriators).

This author takes a close look at a selection of these records from one of their Meetings in Ireland and concludes that while there are some irritating difficulties associated with their use, the records are a particularly rich source of data that can be reliably utilized for a wide variety of purposes, such as elucidation of social, economic, ecclesiastical and genealogical issues.< Less
