Notes

Assigning Categories to profiles

Since the name 'Antrim' is associated with a large area, e.g. Antrim Poor Law Union covered an area of 181 square miles and County Antrim has an area of 1,195 square miles, use the following guidance when assigning categories:
  • Use category Antrim Town, County Antrim for people associated with Antrim town or Urban district, e.g. people who appear under Antrim Urban DED in the 1901/1911 Ireland census or appear in a record with a named street in Antrim Town.
  • Use the appropriate townland category for people who can be more accurately associated with a specific townland.
  • Use category Antrim Parish, County Antrim for people with connections to Antrim Civil Parish but who cannot be directly associated with the town of Antrim or a specific townland.
  • Use category Antrim Superintendent Registrar's District, County Antrim for people with connections to the Antrim area linked, for example, to the Antrim Poor Law Union, or mentioned in a birth, marriage or death record in Antrim Civil Registration District/Superintendent Registrar's District, or who lived in Antrim Rural District) but who cannot be directly associated with Antrim Civil Parish, the town of Antrim or a specific townland.
  • Use category Unknown Location, County Antrim for individuals who are known to have lived in County Antrim but an exact location can not yet be determined.

Antrim Local Government Areas

Antrim Poor Law Union was formed in 1840, as a consequence of the Irish Poor Law Act of 1838, and covered an area of 181 square miles. It incorporated 19 electoral divisions: Antrim, Ballyclare, Ballylinny, Ballynadrentagh, Ballyrobin, Cargin, Connor, Craigarogan, Cranfield, Crumlin, Donegore, Dundesert, Kilbride, Randalstown, Rashee, Seacash, Sharvogue, Shilvodan, Templepatrick. The population falling within the Union at the 1831 census had been 47,058 with divisions ranging in size from Ballynadrentagh (population 1,514) to Antrim itself (6,060).[2]
Antrim Civil Registration District (also known as Antrim Superintendent Registrar's District) was based on the area of Antrim Poor Law Union. Antrim Civil Registration District was divided into sub-districts (known as Registrar's Districts): Connor, Crumlin, Doagh, Randalstown, Templepatrick.[4] Birth, Marriage and Death records are normally indexed by Civil Registration District and sub-district although individual records usually also mention the townland and parish or street in a town where people mentioned in the register were residing.
The Local Government (Ireland) Act 1898 resulted in the creation of two districts Antrim Urban District (which included the town of Antrim) and Antrim Rural District (which included the surrounding area).[3]
Census returns are grouped by District Electoral Divisions (DED). In the 1901 and 1911 census, Antrim Urban District was represented by one DED: Antrim Urban and Antrim Rural District was represented by one DED: Antrim Rural.[5]
The Borough of Antrim was created in 1973
