These 17 waterford John's hilltenants are listed in the ‘Ledger Accounts’ of the Paul Estate.  It also shows the annual rental amount.   John’s Hill is now part of Waterford city but at the time would have been outside the city.  The houses are of very variable sizes as is evident from the rental amounts which vary from £1 to £155.    The original ledger  is in the Paul Estate records in the National Library of Ireland NLI: Ms. 12,985.  The Paul Estate had holdings in several counties, principally Kerry and Carlow but also some holdings in County Waterford.  Further information on the estates of this family can be found on the Landed Estates Database.
