THE FLAX GROWERS BOUNTY LIST - 1796
(ALSO CALLED THE SPINNING WHEEL LIST)

 

Spinning Wheel Entitlement Lists (the proper title) are all Ireland in alphabetical order. In 1796, the Irish Linen Board published a list of nearly 60,000 individuals who received awards for planting between one and five acres of flax. Individuals who planted one acre were awarded four spinning-wheels, and those growing five acres were awarded a loom. The "Flax Grower's List," is an extremely useful genealogical record since virtually no Irish census of the nineteenth century has survived. FHLC 6341104 is the microfiche version, available for .15 per sheet and it stays in the local FHC permanent collection. FHLC 1419442 is the microfilm version.
