The Ordnance Survey Memoirs are a uniquely detailed source for the history of the northern half of Ireland immediately before the Great Famine. They were written in the 1830s to accompany the Ordnance Survey maps, but were not published at the time. In these new editions they act as a 19th century Domesday book and are essential to the understanding of the cultural heritage of their communities. They document the landscape and situation, buildings and antiquities, land-holdings and population, and employment and livelihood of the parishes. This volume contains the Memoirs for Enniskillen 8 parishes of Upper Lough Erne. They presents a fascinating portrait of Enniskillen and the people of the surrounding localities, document the history of the Williamite campaigns, and describe in unique detail the everyday life of the farmers and fishermen of the district.
