A Genealogical Survey of the Townland of Dowdallshill, Dundalk, Co. Louth:

 

The townland of Dowdallshill is situated just north of Dundalk. Along the southwest perimeter of the townland runs Doyle's Fort Road, once a main route into Dundalk. The southeast perimeter is bordered by the Dundalk/Newry Road, which has become a much calmer place since the completion of the Dundalk Ring Road.  According to the Townlands Index of 1851, Dowdallshill is 442 Statute Acres in size, in the Barony of Upper Dundalk and Parish of Dundalk. It was in this district that Schomberg, William III's general, camped in 1689-90 and lost more men from sickness than in battle.

 

Early mention of the townland is to be found in the Dowdall Deeds:

 

[page 230] Rental of Dowedalle's lands in Dundalk, made by Dunslewe O Corkeran, 18 June, 30 Henry VIII (1538):

 

"Donslewe O Corkeran in Hargynmoryesaghe, called Dowedal's Hill, ten acres in one piece, five acres in another piece there, and three more acres in Carnanryaghe.

 

Dunslewe McYlraley at Dowedal's Hyll an acre and a half of Donslewe O Cocran's setting and two acres that McKnaunde set him."

 

[Page 342] The lands belonging to Christopher Dowdall, esq., descended to Andrew Dowdall, Esq. (1661):

 

"In the town of Dundalk 40 Tenements with gardens and backsides, and one old castle in Dundalk, a parcel of land called Dowdall's Hill, with some pastures belonging unto him there."

 

[Page 347] Petition and claim of Andrew Dowdall Esq., of Killaly, co. Louth, to the commissioners for executing His Majesty's gracious declaration for the settlement of Ireland (1663):

 

"In the town of Dundalk 35 houses or Tenements and 35 gardens and backsides, and an old castle called Doudall's castle [Church Street, Dundalk]; a parcel of land called Dowdall's Hill, with some appurtenances near Dundalk."

 

[Page 355] P. Trant, Francis Plowden and Richard Collins, Comrs. of the Revenue demise 1 July, 1689, to Patrick Dowdall, of Dundalk, esq., for 1 year from May last, the following:

 

"In Dowdall's hill 40 acres."

Worth noting are the reports issued by the commissioners appointed to take the censuses (on open shelves in the National Archives of Ireland). The following are some details of Dowdallshill townland extrapolated from the reports:

 

            Year            Population            Number of Houses

            1841                609                              130

            1851                487                              119

            1861                410                                97

            1871                362                                99

            1881                417                                90

            1891                388                                90

            1901                378                                85

            1911                388                                91

 

The one-sixth decline in population in the 1840's is noticeable. By February 1846 the effects of the Famine had reached Dundalk union, as on the 27th of this month, the workhouse guardians reported, "considerable destitution begins to be felt in the Union, which could be attributed to the disease of the potato crop". Dowdallshill belonged to Dundalk Poor Law Union where, in 1847, the workhouse was extended to allow for the reception of 920 inmates. In the same year infectious diseases reached epidemic proportions in the area. The 36% reduction in the population of this one townland over the fifty-year period 1841-1891 compares with a national reduction of 42% in the same period.

 

Of the 52 different surnames (and variants) that appear in the 1901 census, twenty-seven or 52% are to be found in Griffith's Valuation of 1854. Fifteen or 29% of the 1901 surnames can be found in both the Valuation and the Tithe Applotments. Given the social upheavals of the times and the already mentioned depopulation of the area, these figures, from a genealogical point of view, are significant.
