The first act for the valuation of Ireland was passed in the year 1826
(7 Geo. IY. cap. 62). It was intended to form the basis of rating
for county purposes only, its object being, according to the preamble,
"the more equal levying of county cess charges and grand jury
rates upon the several baronies, parishes, and other divisions of
land, within the several counties of Ireland." Under this statute a
Commissioner of Valuation was appointed. Mr. Griffith (afterwards
Sir Eichard Griffith) was the first to fill the post, and this, and all
subsequent valuations of Ireland were carried out under his directions.
