* Ireland, Lord Viscount Morpeth’s Testimonial Roll, 1841

When George Howard (Lord Viscount Morpeth) left his post as Chief Secretary for Ireland, he was presented with a remarkable parting gift for an Englishman: a 420-meter roll of parchment signed by close to 160,000 people. The signers came from all over Ireland and from all levels of society, and some included their address or residence.

The 1841 date of the roll is significant because it predates the Great Famine in 1845 and because most 19th century Irish census records have been destroyed.
