heart money records

This tax was levied on the basis on the number of hearths, or fireplaces, in each house, listing the name of the house occupier and the number of hearths they had, including kilns and forges. Tipperary Studies holds the published list of these, “Tipperary’s Families, being the Hearth Money Records for 1665-6-7”, published by Thomas Laffan in 1911.
