This paper focuses on the Irish maps of Reverend Abraham Hume (1814-84), inter alia Church of England clergyman, antiquarian, ethnographer and maker of maps of the social condition of Liverpool. Thomas Larcom may have inspired manuscript maps showing the distribution of religions during the 1840s, but Hume has the distinction of putting into print what may be the first maps to record some of those divisions of religion and language that remain significant for regional identity in Ireland.
