This book edited by John Bateman in 1883 is a very useful despite its flaws, many outlined by the author himself in the introduction. It contains references to education and the clubs of individuals and some high status jobs and military connections. While this information can be found elsewhere it is convenient to find it in one location. With families that do not necessarily appear in the standard peerage and gentry reference books it is particularly welcome. It is vital that when looking at Irish aspects of this book that 'Landowners in Ireland 1876' should be at hand to double check the individuals one has particular interest in. Page 304 is largely unreadable but only the bottom 5 are relevant to Ireland. For a compilation of information 5 stars but for deeper genealogy only 3 stars, no spouses names are given.
