||| Can anyone explain exactly what Tythe records are,
||| please?
||
|| The Composition Act of 1823 called for the payment of
|| tithes with money to the Church of Ireland. A valuation
|| of land was then taken. The assessment of land for the
|| tithes was grossly inequitable and thus met with a lot
|| of resentment, especially since Catholics were required
|| to pay tithes to the Church of Ireland.

Not just Catholics but Presbyterians, and other
non-Anglicans, too.
