This CELT digital version was compiled and annotated by Dr Pádraig Mac Cárthaigh, UCC Physics Department.
Sir John Freke (1765-1845), who succeeded to the title of 6th Baron Carbery on the death of his cousin John Evans, fifth Baron Carbery in 1807, was an extensive Munster landowner of the late eighteenth/early nineteenth century. Thomas Sherrard (1750-1837), a prominent Dublin-based land surveyor, learned his profession as an apprentice to Bernard Scalé (1738-1826), the most notable pupil of the renowned 18th century Huguenot cartographer John Rocque (c. 1705-1762). The Freke Estate (Cork) Survey of 1787/88 by Thomas Sherrard has now been digitized and will be hosted by CELT. It was compiled and annotated by Dr Pádraig Mac Cárthaigh, UCC Physics Department, with access to the original document kindly provided by the Dean of Ross.
