THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

Irish Children in 18th Century Schools and Institutions Editorial Notes

No editorial corrections of personal names have been made, although the modern form of geographic locations has been utilised.

For example, Offaly is used rather than King's County. The transcription of dates and year are as they appear in the original source. Only titles that appear in the original entry or transcription such as 'Hon.', 'Lord', 'Earl' and so forth have been included in the given name of the record where appropriate. As such they will appear within a browse or 'given name' search.

Date of death is that of children while in the care of an institution and not as an adult. Additional biographical information has been added where available and appropriate.

The field 'Townland' covers the home location of the child when given, which may be an institution, a house, street or parish and is accompanied by that townland's county location.
