Hello can someone help me with a transcription for this house book description record?so far i have got:
Carrowkeel
John Healy £4.0.0
house one-third lofted [one-third written in figures]
shed at and 1 office
Barn and Stable
Cowhouse
This house is in a unfinished state
ground floors mortar and clay no ____(deduct 2/6) per £
painting papering & thatch are in upper room
and it is but of ordinary materials :deduct
2/6 per pound and therefore? __ same ,as well
as from the offices , which may be said to be
in a similar state. The situation may be considered ordinary being farther from markets
than the above and having a bad passage
to roads though nearly the same in all other respects
30th Dec 1844 martin coffey Valuator

Im not sure what the numbers mean ,a points system and a valuation based on that ,just for shed etc???This report is very interesting because our house was supposedly built in 1759 and built onto as i was told,the house is still here and walls downstairs are like 2 and 1/2 feet thick and it was one and a half stories before. If anybody could help me i would be extremely gratefull as i know it is a large enough transcription
Just tried to add in bits to your post. Hope it's okay.

The next columns are the length, breadth and height in feet and inches. Followed by the area in square yards. (104, 21, 49, 19 etc)

The first entry for the marriage of Henry Byrne and Susanna Verdon, any idea what is written under the fathers name Henry Verdon?

Thanks.

Pretty sure it's Dec for deceased. That's nearly always what's written in this particular location on the document, if applicable.
