The Scahill Families In The Westport Area In 1856


The Scahill Name History Certificate

In the ninetenth century there were a number of Scahill Families in the Westport area, i.e. the parishes of *Oughaval, Kilmena and Aghagower.

It is probable that all were related to some degree, but unfortunately records for this part of the country are neither old enough, nor explicit enough to allow any degrees of kinship be established.

The General Valuation of Rateable Property,1856, is the first source giving the name of landholders and tenants through out the entire country. From this source it is apparent that there were fourteen Scahill households around Westport, the most of which were in the Murrisk area.

The town of Westport lies mostly in the parish of Oughaval (pronounced "Oak-wall"), and partly in the parish of Kilmeena.

The parish of Aghagower comes within a mile of the town and so, any enquiry concerning Westport requires the records for each of these three parishes to be searched.
