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.
