Applications to Register Freeholds in the Barony of Raphoe, Co. Donegal 1829-31

Transcribed, Compiled and Submitted by
Len Swindley, Melbourne, Australia

In 1829 the Parliament at Westminster abolished the 40 shilling franchise. The qualification for the right to vote became the possession of a freehold property with a minimum annual valuation of £10. These applicants were known as “Ten Pound Freeholders”. So great were the numbers of Ulster Presbyterians applying for the vote, it caused great alarm in London where the Presbyterians of Ireland were viewed with great distrust following their leading role in the Rebellion of 1798 and the franchise was increased to £50 instantly eliminating almost all. This was the final straw for many substantial Presbyterian farmers and a great encouragement to relinquish their leases and emigrate to the New World
