    • Have searched HODSON to FLANAGAN 1800-1924.

  3. Transfer of Greenhills around 1940 from Flanagan to Kavanagh.
    • Have searched (FLANAGAN or HODSON) to (KAVANAGH or FLANAGAN), 1925-54. Nothing found.


Hodson and Flanagan deeds

Where did I first get the references for the Hodson and Flanagan deeds?
They first appear on my site in 2000 as follows:

in [LR] is a deed of 15th May 1816, Hartley Hodson, of Green Park, Co.Westmeath,
to "Denis and William Flanagan", think of land in or near Greenhills, Tallaght

in [LR] is a deed of 20th Jan 1825, Denis and William Flanagan to Andrew Corcoran,
and another, 27th Nov 1825, Corcoran and Flanagan to Richard Guiney

Where did I get them? If in LR why did I not note the full references? And anyway, the second 1825 deed is not in the LR.

Other land records
