There are very few proprietors in the county who may be considered as total non-residents, or, at least, such as live altogether out of the kingdom. For instance, Lord Belmore has several properties in the county, yet he is set down as a non-resident, because he lives in a neighbouring county; the like may be said of others. Some there are also, who have properties in the county, yet reside on rented farms on other parts of it; yet here I do not consider them as actual residents, they not living on their estates. There are several clergymen, possessed of considerable property, exclusive of church livings, which are here omitted altogether, as the account of the number of parishes is given under the article Ecclesiastical Division, and which compose a large portion of the county, when joined to bishop’s land.

The following is a List of the principal Proprietors:

Those marked R, may be considered steady residents, or, at least, live the greater part of their time in the country. Besides the above, there are a great number of freehold properties in perpetuity, but comparatively small; the occupiers, with very few exceptions, live on their properties, and are, of course, a useful part of the community.
