Townlands in Northern Ireland

Townlands are small land divisions which are still used throughout Ireland today to help identify the precise location of a home or estate, particularly in rural areas. It will be referred to in many of the local and family history sources you find including Birth, Death and Marriage records and the same families often stayed in the same townland and parish for many generations.

Our Townland Locator can help you to narrow your search of records to those relevant to the precise parish and county in which your Ancestors originated.
