Ferguson Distribution In County Fermanagh

Griffith's Valuation is a property survey that was conducted in Ireland between 1847 and 1864. Since census records prior to 1901 do not survive for Ireland the survey is used to get an idea of how the Ferguson were distributed in Ireland circa 1855. The map below shows how the 42 different Ferguson households were distributed within the county Fermanagh.
