County Kilkenny Ireland - 1640 Landowner Map
Landowner Map of County Kilkenny
Prior to the Cromellian plantations of the latter 17th century, the
landowners in County Kilkenny largely consisted of the Old English families
who arrived in the wake of the Cambro-Norman invasion in the late 12th
and 13th centuries. A third of the lands were in the hands of the Butler
dynasty which included the Earl of Ormond.
