The Magan maps

Forty-five maps of the Granard and Ballymacormack areas contained in a volume. The surveyor was John Brownrigg (1748/9-1838) of the company of Longfield and Associates, and the work was commissioned by joint landowners, George F. Lyttleton and William F. Greville. The surveys of Granard town and surrounding townlands – the ‘manor of Granard’- were conducted in the period 1789-1792, and those of the ‘manor of Ballymacormack’ probably later, though all maps are dated 1795. The volume was produced by the cartographers J. and W. Newton, Chancery Lane, London, presumably after c.1818, when William, son of John Newton, joined the company.

Geroge F. Lyttleton and William F. Greville were sons of the co-heiresses of James Macartney of Longford, who was in turn a co-heir of Ambrose Aungier, earl of Longford. Aungier was granted the manor of Granard in 1719.

The maps generally show: the boundaries of farms and give their areas; describe land quality/usage; the names of occupiers; and topographical features such as buildings, roads and streams. The first map – of Granard town – is very detailed and has a reference table with the names of the occupiers of  the numbered plots and descriptions of their holdings.

The maps are as follows, with ‘n’ indicating where name(s) are given and all scales are given:
