A tithe (/ t aɪ ð /; from Old English: teogoþa "tenth") is a one-tenth part of something, paid as a contribution to a religious organization or compulsory tax to government.

PRONI holds the tithe books for all but 31 of the parishes then surveyed in Northern Ireland.   The Tithe Applotment Books and Griffith’s Valuation are the two most important land surveys in Ireland for the nineteenth century. The later survey, Griffith’s Valuation is perhaps the most valuable as it is generally more comprehensive. Both are seen as 'Census substitutes' but they do not include as much information as the Census of / Generally their use is in.

In Ireland, because the tithe system was used for the upkeep of the Established Church only, it caused a great deal of unrest among Roman Catholics and Presbyterians. Until , the tithe was paid in kind by occupiers of land to the Established Church [churchlands and towns being exempt]. I say you may take the whole of the Protestants of Ireland—and it would be hard, indeed, to take them from the people of Ireland, for I am at this moment surrounded with Protestant friends who are ardent in the cause of Ireland—but if I give you all, you will have a million and a-half, including the Presbyterians, who do not love tithes.

The Reformation in Ireland was a movement for the reform of religious life and institutions that was introduced into Ireland by the English administration at the behest of King Henry VIII of desire for an annulment of his marriage was known as the King's Great tely Pope Clement VII refused the petition; consequently, in order to give legal effect to his wishes, it. The Tithe Applotment Books were compiled between and as a survey of land in each civil parish to determine the payment of tithes (a religious tax). Unlike Griffith's Valuation they do not cover cities or towns. The Tithe Applotment Books are available online, free of charge on the National Archives of Ireland website.   Ireland is a country where your version of history tells your take on today's politics and current events.
