The Tithe Applotment Books cover the period 1823-1837 and record the amount of tax payable from the occupier of land to support the Protestant Church of Ireland. A very unpopular tax.
The Tithe Applotment Books are now online at The National Archives Site. There are many transcription errors, so check the original document carefully.
The books are arranged by townland and list the name of each land occupier, the size and quality of their land and the tithe due.
By comparing what your ancestors paid to that of their neighbours in the same townland you can get an idea of how well off or not they were. The tithes were only paid on agricultural land.
In the 1830s many refused to pay these taxes and there are lists of these Tithe Defaulters on Irish Origins, a fee paying site. In this post I have included Fanning and Darmody Tithe Defaulters.

John Fannin of Lacken in Lattin Parish Co Tipperary in the Tithe Applotment Book
While there is no Laurence Fannin listed when searching on the original documents I think this is a Laurence Fannin of Grague Moycarky:
Hard to decipher the next entry. It has been listed as Mathew Fannin :
Robert Fannin of Ballinver
Templemichael Parish Co Tipperary South in the Tithe Applotment Book 1834
Second Tithe Applotment Entry for Robert Fannin of Ballinver in Templemichael Parish Co Tipperary South 1834
John Fannin of Gurtadangan in Templeree Parish Co Tipperary North in the Tithe Applotment Book 1827
There is another entry for a John Fannin of Gurtadangan but I think it is a duplication.
The following entry was listed incorrectly as Edmond Hannin but I think it is Edmond Fannin of Buckley Islands which is in Inch Civil Parish. Given that he is in Inch Parish he is most likely part of my family.
There are many more entries for Fanning in the Tithe Applotment Books for Co Tipperary:
Joseph Fanning of Parkstown in Ballymureen Parish Co Tipperary North in the Tithe Applotment Book 1827 Sept
I don’t see two other Joseph Fannings in Parkstown so I think this is a duplication. Checking the entries for this Joseph Fanning of Parkstown there appear to be two handwritten copies of the same records which may account for some of the transcription errors.

Hi Kathleen I am from Co Wexford my great grand mother was a Fanning and I have been told that they first came to north Wexford from Tipperary did you ever hear of any Wexford connections looking forward to hearing from you
So far I have not come across any Fannings in Co Wexford that I am related to.regards Kathleen
Just looking back at this post and was wondering if you have done a DNA test as this would show a connection. Most likely it is true that your Fanning family came from Co Tipperary as your great grand mother was a Fanning. That is not so far distant and family stories are usually true.
I had a look at my Ancestry DNA matches and I do match a Patrick Byrne there as 5-8th cousin.Is this by any chance you? Hope to hear back from you.
