Kinsella Freeholders



The term "Freeholder" refers to persons who met one of the qualifications to vote, i.e. they owned or held a lease on land worth 40 shillings and were known as a 40 shilling leaseholder--the poorest class of voter. If you did not meet this qualification, you couldn't vote. Later, the limit was raised to 10 pounds.
