Hearth Money Rolls

Below are listed Ó Dochartaighs from the Hearth Money Rolls for Inishowen and Raphoe in Donegal (dated 1665), for County Londonderry (dated 1663), for County Tyrone (dated 1666), and for County Antrim (dated 1669). The Heart Money Rolls were not a complete enumeration of the population, as many were exempted or evaded the list. Also, there are many areas for which rolls have not survived.

The O'Doherty Heritage website is designed to be your place for all things Ó Dochartaigh. Whether your name or ancestry is from a Doherty, Dougherty, Daugherty, Docherty, Dogherty, if your family used another spelling of our name, or if you're from one of our related Donegal families, such as the McDevitt/McDaid, McBride, McConlogue, or others–we welcome you to the O'Doherty Heritage website!

The vision of the O'Doherty Heritage is "Telling our story, uniting us together." This was the same vision of our ancestors, the Ó Dochartaigh patriarchs, when they established our Clan motto, Ár nDúthchas–which means 'Our Heritage'. Below are the goals of O'Doherty Heritage:


  • Share our heritage with our entire Clan

  • Research, document, & bring our history to life

  • Curate a digital Clan genealogy research library


  • Encourage quality genealogical research

  • Promote clan identity and pride in our heritage

  • Facilitate communication amongst our clanfolk
