The Powers in Griffith’s Valuation of Ireland

Over 4000 entries bearing the name “Power” are listed in Griffith’s Valuation in Co. Waterford alone.   This body of work was the first full-scale valuation of land in Ireland and took place between 1847 and 1864.  Owing to many important Irish documents and census returns being destroyed in a fire in 1922, Griffith’s Valuation remains one of the most important genealogical sources still in existence.

The good news is that the records are available online, with a mapping element so with a little information, you can work out where and when your land-owning or renting Power ancestor lived in Waterford.
