Taken from the Vestry Book for the Parish of Moville, List comes from 1774 when Upper and Lower Moville was one Parish, Vestry book is held at PRONI, I Apologise for any spelling mistakes or missing information, some of the text was Illegible, or difficult to read, where I am confident of a modern spelling of a townland I provide that spelling in brackets, I have reproduced the list as it appears in the ledger.  Many of the names on the list can be cross referenced against entries in the Flax Growers list of 1796

In many instances the entry will give a name followed by & Partner/s, I think this refers to the type of farming which was carried out in the Parish at this time, 60 years later when a statistical study was carried out by the Ordnance Survey in the 1830s, Stewart Marks the Curate of Upper Moville Parish described the farms as:

  All various in size, but in general all small and scarcely any enclosures at all, as the greatest part of them are occupied in rundale. The method of cultivation is such as might have existed 2 or 3 centuries ago. The succession of crops are potatoes, oats or barley, flax and oats. I consider that the first great step to improvement would be to divide the farms into reason-able sizes, say from 10 to 20 acres, according to the ability of the occupier, and to cause the tenant to enclose his farm with a good clay ditch planted with thorn quicks and to build his house upon his own farm. As the cabins at present are generally built in a cluster which is a continued source of contention, from their cattle, fowls etc. trespassing on each other

The Rundale system is described by Wikipedia 

 The rundale system (apparently from to run and dale, valley, originally something separated off, cf. deal) was a form of occupation of land, somewhat resembling the English common field system. The land is divided into discontinuous plots, and cultivated and occupied by a number of tenants to whom it is leased jointly. The system was common in Ireland, especially in the western counties. In Scotland, where the system also existed, it was termed run rig (from run, and rig or ridge).

At a Vestry held at the Chapple of Redcastle in the Parish of Moville on Monday the 7th of November 1774 by the Rector, church warden and several Protestant parishioners to ascertain and confirm the sum of 26 2s  5d  layd on the Parish this present year for the following use viz. Five pounds to Robert McIntyre and Tho. McKinnley for viewing the Parish and apploting the money. Ten pounds to the Parish clerk, three pounds to Matt Bramhall for the use of his barn, Thirty shillings to the sexton for his salary & washing the surplice. One pound ten shillings for bread & wine. Forty shillings to the church wardens for their trouble. Five shillings to the late church wardens for their expenses attending the visitation. Six shillings & sixpence to James Steen for painting the window shutters, Two shillings & five pence for spade & shovel for the ??? old church of Moville for the houses of the Parish the sum of 26 2s 5d is ascertaind & confirmed on the following land & inhabitants viz-----
