The management of Tipperary’s land gave rise to the creation of estate papers, a number of which are housed by Tipperary Studies. These are, however, some of the few survivors: the records of so many estates throughout the county have been, through one means or another, unfortunately destroyed. These papers typically contain evidence of rentals, correspondence and accounts, along with other miscellaneous articles such as maps. Whilst the majority of our family papers are in their original paper format, a small number of collections, such as Ryans’ of Inch and the Scully Papers, have been microfilmed. The largest family/estate collections in Tipperary Studies are as follows;

Bagwell (Marlfield)

Cole Bowen (Ballymackey, Upper Ormond)

Mathew (Thurles & Thomastown)

Ryan (Inch)

Scully (Golden)

Wall (Holycross)
