"In fee" means they have purchased the property. LAP are the initials for
the Land Purchase Act that allowed people to purchase the land they had
been leasing (that is a simple definition based on my simple knowledge).

I am new to land records. I have found Hugh McDonnell in Lehinch record. In
black the initial recording is Mary McAvenna. That is crossed out in blue
and Celia his daughter is listed and then finally in red is Hugh's name.
the Immediate Lessors ( landlord?) the Reps of Hump Butler are listed,
crossed out in red with "in fee" written in red and then a stamp in a
rectangle with L.A.P. in the entry. What does this mean?
Under area A. is 18. does this mean 18 acres?
Finally in the last column in blue ink 1902, red 1906 and purple in 1908. I
assuming that the ink colors correspond to the changes in the entries?
Sorry for so many questions but these entries are all new to me, and proba
bly others as well.
