The Townlands of Ballywillin Civil Parish

The townlands in Ballywillin Parish (Baile an Mhuilinn) are those taken from Ballywillin Parish on Logainm.ie and validated against townlands on the 1851, 1871 and 1901 Lists of Towns and Townlands and Griffiths valuations data. A link is provided in the notes for the 1901 and 1911 census. Please note that these may not always work if the townland was not available on the census in question. The census site may also substitute a similar name so be prepared for unexpected results! Similar for Griffith's valuation links which may show multiple names.

If there is no link and you need the category please contact David to get the category created or put in a request for the category to be created.
