The Cromwellian Settlement of Ireland. Dublin: Mellifont Press, 1922. Third Edition. Pp xliii, 524. With three illustrations and three maps. Ex library copy, with stamps. Rebound in red cloth boards, title in gilt to spine. A very good copy.

Illustrated with maps and tables. A seminal work in this area, following the conquest by Oliver Cromwell in 1652.

Cromwell’s goal at that time was to move all Irish into the barren province of Connaught and settle the rest of Ireland with loyal Englishmen. This book is the story of the events leading up to and including this mass movement of people.

The book describes in vivid detail stories of the evictees, including those of rank, title and English blood as in the case of Lady Dunsany. With detailed accounts of the clearing of the land, the exceptions, the transplanters certificates, and the court processes that went along with the moving of a large number of people.
