According to the Griffith’s Valuation property survey of 1847-1864 the numbers of Joynt households in Ireland were distributed as follows:

Town/City Number Of Families Town/City Number Of Families Town/City Number Of Families
Antrim 2 Dublin City 1 Limerick City 6
Belfast City 3 Galway 1 Mayo 26
Clare 4 Limerick 1 Sligo 1

The alternative spelling of Joint was distributed as follows:

Town/City Number Of Families Town/City Number Of Families
Galway 4 Wexford 1
Mayo 3 Wicklow 1

From the figures shown it is noticeable that the largest numbers of Joynt households were in the Co. Mayo area of Ireland with
Limerick/Limerick City coming second. Unfortunately, due to the destruction of the Irish censuses prior to 1901 it is more difficult to
pinpoint which families were included in these numbers. However, with the assistance of baptism, marriage, civil registration and
various Joynt family records it is possible to place some family groups in particular areas.

Additionally, I will also take this opportunity to expand the distribution of Irish born Joynt families throughout the world.
