In order to avoid the legal disabilities imposed
by the Penal Law, a number of Catholics
renounced their religion for that of the
established Church of Ireland. In the majority
of cases this was not a sincere renunciation of
the Catholic religion, as it was the only legal
means whereby a Catholic could obtain basic
civil rights. The Convert Rolls, covering the
period from 1704 to 1839, in addition to the
names, give the address and sometimes the names
of parents. The Convert Rolls edited by E.
O'Byrne has been published by the Irish
Manuscript Commission (1981).
