2 P- - THE CROMWELLIAN SETTLEMENT OF THE COUNTY OF LIMERICK. BY JAMES GRENE BARRY, Y.R.S.A.I. P Some preliminary remarks are necessary to lead up to my subject, and to explain how the Crornwellian settlement came about.. In a previous paper I showed the results of the Desmond confiscations, and the consequent settlement of this county under Queen Elizabeth. After the Flight of the Earls in 1607, English and Scotch " Undertakers," as they were called, got grants to the extent of three million acres in the six escheated Ulster counties (I). In these grants, however, only the arable Iand is mentioned or measured, amounting to 511,467 acres. The mountains, bogs, and uncultivated lands were treated as " waste land "; but, in course of time, we find this "waste land " was taken possession of by the grantees. The native Irish were restored," as it is called, to about 75,000 acres of arable land, and, we may assume, also acquired a due proportion of L' waste land." It must be remembered that this Ulster Settlement under James I. was unlike the Munster Settlement of his predecessors, as - there had been no general rising or overt act of treason committed by the old proprietors. After the defeat of the Irish at the battle of Kinsale, in 1603, O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone, had made his submission and was graciously received into favour by King James in bndon. Hugh OPDonnell was, on his submission, created Earl of Tyrconnell. (I) The six counties were Armagh, Tyrone, Coleraine (now Derry), Donegal, Fermanagh, and Cavan.

3 2 The King took this opportunity to abolish Tanistry and other old Irish customs, and substituted instead the feudal system of land tenure. The Earls had their vast territories made into shires. Sheriffs were, for the first time, appointed, and judges went circuit. The Earls, without consulting their Clans, agreed to hold their lands, for the future, direct from the Crown, and their vassals and clansmen were turned into tenants at fixed rents and tenures, instead of holding under the old customary due$. Under the Irish system the Chief was elected from the reigning family by the Clan, and was merely tenant for life of the lands of the Clan, except certain demesne lands, which went with the chiefry. Horvever, this attempt, which I believe was honestly made, to get rid of what was considered barbarous customs, was marred, unfortunately, by the enactment, in 1605, of certain Penal laws against the religion of the Irish people. Up to this time the doctrines of the Reformation had made no way in Ireland. The late Dr. Richey, Professor of Feudal and English Law in T.C.D., says, in one of his well-known lectures.on Irish History :-(2) " The entire population of Ireland was hitherto Catholic ; the Catholics were divided into two parties-the Trish Catholics and the Catholics of the English connexion. The former, clinging to native usages and laws, were in their traditions and ideas utterly opposed to the English rule, and they, as irreconcilable~, were destined, if they could not triumph, hopelessly to succumb. The latter, except in the question of religion, were thoroughly English ; they fdrmed the mass of the English partisans, lent to the Government the physical force necessary to its maintenance, and swelled the official party in the Irish Parliament. It was this Catholic party which passed the acts relative to the affairs of the Church and the dissolution of the Monasteries." We see the Irish of that period differed on every subject except religion. After the plantation of Ulster, and the enactment and strict enforcement of penal laws, the whole aspect changed. The ritual and formularies of the Church were altered, and an active campaign commenced against the old religion. Endowed schools were +established in each county, and a provision was made for a resident ' Ptotestant clergy in every parish ; so that under this plantation, (2) "A Short History of the Irish People." Ed. 1887, p Professor Richey says that the Protestant clergy "got for the first time a social status in the country which they had never enjoyed before." The new Planters formed a loyal body, whose interests was to support the Government in enforcing religious conformity. They naturally looked forward to futher confiscations. The Catholics of the Pale were, at last, forced to side with their CO-religionists, and thus came about for the first time an united Irish party. We, therefore, find two elements of discontent : I--the confiscation of the tribe lands in Ulster, owing to the outlawry of the Chiefs ; 2-religious persecution, which extended to the whole of Ireland. Partial risings were from time to time put down with the strong hand, and considerable portions of the Counties of Leitrim, Longford, King's County and Wexford, were escheated and planted. When the Government of Ireland came into the hands of Black Tom " Wentworth, Earl of Strafford, the country was, to all appearances, enjoying a period of peace and contentment. In order to find funds for his royal master to fight his Scotch subjects, Strafford made a progress through the greater part of Ireland, and appointed LLDiscoverers," to investigate and pick holes in the titles to lands granted during the previous reign. By taking advantage of technical errors in these patents from the Crown, he succeeded in raising a lalge sum for the King, without giving him the trouble to appeal to Parliament. Tht~s we have a new source of discontent. The old Connaught proprietors, who in Queen Elizabeth's time paid large sums to save their estates from a claim three hundred years old, and had got new patents from the Crown, had' now these same estates confiscated. Strafford at first offered them half their old estates under fresh patents, the other half to revert to the Crown for a new Plantation; but Charles was now in trouble with his Parliament, and preferred money. Consequently, they were graciously allowed to compound for the retention of their estates by the payment of large fines. ~ucli was the condition of affairs in Ireland when the outbrealr or national rising of 1641 toak place. It is not my intention to take sides in the controversy as to the alleged wholesale massacres.and atrocities connected with this event,except to state that it has

4 4 been conceded by all unprejudiced historians that the exaggerated details of massacres given by Sir John Temple, in his narrative published in 1645, may be discounted and discredited. I have so far given, as concisely as possible, the three active elements which led up to the civil war of 1641, which lasted for over nine years, and ended so disastrously for the Irish nation by the confiscations and settlement of the country under Cromwell. The Irish were at first successful in capturing the principai walled towns. when Limerick revolted, Captain George Courtenay, a younger son of Sir William Courtenay, was in the castle with sixty of his own company, twentyeight warders and others, to the number of two hundred men, but they were scanty of provisions and could get none from the town except by stealth. They had arms of one sort or other for all the men, but not above sixty muskets or caliveis that were serviceable : the rest were petronels, pistols, carabines, brown-bills and fowling pieces. There were three demi-canon, two sakers, and one minion ; but not above five or six firkins of powder in the place. The first work the Irish set about in order to take the fort was the making of a.boomacross the river, over against a place called Mock Beggar Mear (1) within musket shot of the castle. It was made of long ashen trees fastened with iron links on the Thomond side to two mill stones, and at the other end to the tower of the key. The Irish plied the garrison with their shot from St. Mary's church, so that none could stir in the castle-yard. On June z~sf Captain Courtenay capitulated when part of the wall fell down." Limerick was taken by the Confederate Catholics, under Lords Ikerrin and Muslrerry and General Barry, on June zrst, King Charles now offered to come over and lead his army to subdue thpse wicked and detestable rebels," but the Parliament refused either to allow him to leave England or to vote funds for the army. They substituted a scheme for raising funds by private subscription to pay an army for conquering Ireland. By the Adventurers' Act, passed on February ~6th~ r C q, every one who would bring in and adventure money for the " reducing of Ireland should hare so many acres of the Irish rebels lands, proportionable to the money which they brought in." There (3). " Life of the Duke of Ormond." Vol. II., p. 304 were 1,360 subscribers under this scheme, and the sum subscribed amounted to ;643,406 5s. od. Prendergast, in his Cromwellian Settlement of Ireland," gives the names, occupations, and amounts subscribed by these adventurers. We find all classes mixed up in this adventure-peers, Parliament-men, army men, gentlemen, professional men, merchants, ' traders, farmers, and artisans. 2,;oo,ooo acres were to be parcelled out among these men, in proportion to the money subscribed. Subscribers of Lzoo were to be allotted I,OOO acres in Ulster ; of 300,.: r,ooo acres in Connaught ; of L~oo, 1,000 acres in Munster ; and of 6600, 1,ooo acres in Leinster. In this way an army of ;,OOO foot and 400 horse was raised and equipped for service in Ireland ; but before they reached that country the Civil War broke out in England, and they were ordered to join the Parliamentary forces at Edgehill, where they were cut to pieces by the Royal forces. The next scheme adopted by the English Parliament for the re-conquest of Ireland was the pledging of the chief sea-ports to the public, on the following terms :-Limerick City, with 12,000 acres of land adjoining, was offered for ~3o,ooo, and a rent to the State of A625 a year ; Waterford, with I j,ooo acres adjoining, at the same rate ; Galway, with ~o,boo acres adjoining, for &7,joo, and a rent of 520 a year ; and Wexford, with 6,000 acres adjoining, for ~5,ooo, and a rent of 156 4s. 4d. a year. But the English public refused to swallow this rich bait, having in mind the fate of the Adventurers. In 1b43 the Marquis of Ormond had been made, by the King, Lord Lieutenant and Commander-in-Chief in Ireland. He, however, made terms with the Parliament in 1647, and surrendered to them Dublin and the other fortified towns ; whereupon a reinforcement of 1,400 foot and 600 horse were sent to Ireland, under Generals Kipper and Massy. On the death of the King, in 1649, the Parliament were free to give their undivided attention to the conquest of Ireland. The General they selected was Oliver Cromwell. 'ro understand the situation at this date in Ireland, it will be necessary for us to enter fhe Irish camp, and see how matters have developed there since I 641. In the Parliamqnt which met in I 639 the Catholic party had a majority both in the Houses of Peers and

5 Commons. The Members of Parliament for the County of Limerick were Sir Edward Fitzharris and Bromne Miles ; for the City of Limerick, Alderman Nicholas Arthur and Dominick White ; for Kilmallock, Messrs. Kearney and St. Leger; for Askeaton, Roger Rice and Maurice Williams. Roger, or Rory, O'Moore was the most prominent Member of the Catholic party in this Parliament. Having failed in, his efforts to redress the grievances of his CO-religionists, he formulated a plan to seize Dublin Castle, which failed. He was in correspondence, with Owen Roe O'Neill, a nephew of the Earl of Tyrone, who had lost his ancestral territory as we have seen. O'Neill was an able and experienced General, who had graduated as a soldier in the Netherlands. He took command of the old Irish of Ulster against the Scotch army of Montrose and Leslie, I 2,000 strong ; and his victory against the former General, at Benburb, proved his prowess as a ' capable leader and skilful General. The country at this time was governed by the Kilkenny Confederation, consisting of the Bishops, clergy, Peers, and principal Catholic gentry. The Papal Legate, or Nuncio, Rinuccini, arrived on the scene in 1645, and soon afterwards a split took place between the Lords of the Pale and the Church Party led by Rinuccini. The former made peace with Orinonde in I 646, purchasing their own safety at the expense of the clergy and of the old Irish of Ulster. The Nuncio, from Limerick, :issued a decree condemning the peace and calling on all military and civil officers to "withdraw their allegiance from the late Supreme Council." Owen Roe O'Neill marched his Ulster men into Leinster, and soon had possession of Kilkenny; the Supreme Council flying to Dublin. O'Neill formed a provisional Council in their stead, with the Nuncio as President. But the other section of the Confederates were the strongest; they entered into a treaty with Lord Inchiquin (Morogh-an-totane), who commanded the Parliamentary forces in Munster-he had changed sides in 1644, and now changed over to the King's party. The combined forces were turned against Owen Roe and his Ulster army. A proclamation was issued from Kilkenny, where the Supreme Council had re-established itself, declaring Owen Roe OINeill, Rory OIMore, and the other Catholic leaders " to be common enemies and disturbers of the peace of our Sovereign Lord the King," and ordering the Nuncio to forthwith quit the Kingdom of Ireland. Of course there was a counter-blast from Rinuccini and the Bishops, denouncing the peace of Ormond, whc had once again changed sides, now entered Kilkenny in state, and was received with acclamation and great rejoicing. His first act, however, was to dissolve the Supreme Council. Such was the state of parties in Ireland on the death of Charles F I. Ormond at once proclaimed Charles II., and called on all the'. Irish parties to unite under the Royal banner against the rebel Parliament of England. On the 12th of October, 1649, he signed a treaty with Owen Roe O'Neill, but, unfortunately for the Royal cause, Owen Roe died on the 6th of the following November, and his veteran Ulster army of 6,000 foot and 500 horse were left without a leader. Ormond was not successful in his efforts to unite the Irish parties under his leadership. (4) " Ormond had used all imaginable pains and descended to all the arts of persuasion to engage the magistrates and citizens of Limerick to a step which was necessary for the" security of their persons, estates and religion. But he was so far from prevailing that they did not treat him with those outward forms of civility and respect which had been in no other place denied. The officers that commanded the City guards neither came to him for orders nor imparted them to him.... To show the contempt they had of the King's authority they committed to prison the Viskount Kilmallock, a Roman Catholic peer and an officer of the army (the Lord Lieutenant himself being upon the place), for no other reason, but for quartering for one night some horsemen under his command by the Marquis of Ormond's own orders, within the liberties of the City... There was a Dutch shiij in the river, on board which he put two trunks of papers he was desirous of sending abroad. Dominick Fanning gathering a parcel of young men about him in a riotous manner entered the ship, broke open and rifled the trunks. When they found instead of money papers they desisted. The Mayor had opposed them in the attempt but in vain. The Marquis, to encourage the good inclinations + (4) " Life of the Duke of Ormond." Vol. II., pp

6 1 professed, removed to Clare, quartering the troops he had with him (1700 foot and 350 horse) in the neighbourhood.... Fanning and his party called in Colonel Mortagh O'Brien, a man entirely devoted to their faction, with his regiment increased by zoo recruits, and though the Mayor opposed his entrance at the gates, they made their way into the City by force, seized the magazine of corn laid up there for the supply of the army, and a quantity of corn belonging to his Excellency himself.... Soon after Ireton advancing with his troops they appeared inclined to accept a garrison, but would have it composed of their own choosing, among which they insisted particularly on O'Brien's regiment. This obstinacy and disobedience of Limerick made it impossible for the Marquis of Ormond either to gather or keep the body of an army together." Limerick refused to receive or treat with him. He finally made Loughreagh his headquarters, and appointed Lords Clanricarde and Castlehaven and General Preston to the commands of the Leinster and Munster forces, and made Bishop Heber McMahon, of Clogher, General of Owen Roe's veteran Ulster men, with the result that the Bishop and his army were totally defeated by Sir Charles Coote in a pitched battle near Letterkenny, The Bishop and many notable Ulster men were taken prisoners, and were in due course hanged and quartered in the town of Enniskillen. Olives Crornwell now appears on the scene, having been made Lord Lieutenant of 1reland and Commander-in-Chief by the Parliament. He arrived in Dublin on the 15th of August, 1649, with a force of 8,000 foot and 4,000 horse, and the sum of ~zoo,~oo in cash. The Munster garrisons, under Lords Inchiquin and Broghill, revolted, and joined the Parliamentary forces in the October and November following ; and when Cromwell sailed from Youghal on the 20th May, 1650, the conquest of Ireland had been practically completed, Limerick and Galway being the only towns of any importance which still held out for the King. General Ireton, Cromwell's son-in-law, succeeded as Lord Deputy and Commander of the Parliamentary Forces. Limerick surrendered to him in October, 165 I, after a gallant defence, lasting six months. Ireton died there on the 15th of the following November, and was succeeded by 'General Fleetwood as Lord Deputy. On the 12th?Ifay, 1652, the Leinster army surrendered,.and terms were agreed on, known as the " Kilkenny Articles." The Ulster and Munster forces accepted these terms soon after, and laid down their arms. They were, according to these " Articles," to receive protection for themselves and their fanlilies, and the Parliamentary Commis- sioners undertook to mediate between them and the English Parliament, that they might enjoy in peace what remained of their! lands ; and those not satisfied with the action of Parliament were to., be free to leave the country, and to take service with any foreign' State they might select. The country was now, at the end of the mar, in a deplorable / state-depleted of men and money, stricken with fire and sword, without cattle or growing crops, and with a plague-stricken and starving population. The population of Ireland in 1641 was r,~oo,ooo; in 1652 it was only 85o,ooo,-a reduction of 6~0,ooo in a 1 decade. The population of Dublin in 1641 was estimated at zo,ooo. I It is recorded that in Dublin alone 17,ooo died of the plague between 1650 and The total revenue of Ireland was only ~198,000 a year, but the cost of the army of occupation, estimated at 30,000 men, came to ~500,ooo a year. The remedy found by the English Parliatnent for this lamentable state of affairs was a plan for the speedy planting of the country with the "Adventurers " and disbanded soldiers. It was proposed that all the confiscated lands should be at once surveyed, and that " all soldiers should bring in their demand of arrears, so to give every man by lot so many acres as should answer the value of his demand." The private soldiers and non-commissioned officers were to have their lots at the same rate as the "Adventurers"; lieutenants, cornets, ensigns, and quartermasters at two-thirds of the same rates; and all officers above those degrees at one-half those sates ; and should any private soldier wish to compound his arrears in gross, he was to get ten acres of land for every year of his service. Half the Province of Connaught, west of the Shannon (including portion of the County Clare), was set apart for the Irish proprietois, who were ordered to transplant before the first day of May, 1654, under the penalty of death. A band along the River

7 I0 Shannon, four miles wide, was reserved for the soldiers, in order to secure the imprisonment of the transplanted Irish. This band was subsequently reduced a mile from the river, and a circuit round Limerick City of three miles. When this proclamation for transplanting was issued, the gentry and farmers were busy in harvesting their scanty crops. Each person had to get a certificate, describing his or her personal appearance, position, age, and that of each member of the,ir families and households ; also the quantity of cattle, horses, crops, etc., proposed to be removed. These documents are known as "Transplanters' Certificates,"and had to be presented to the Commissioners for the allotment of lands in Connaught before the first day of February, 1654 The following names appear in these lists connected with the County and City of Limerick :- Arthur, Barry, Bourke, Brown, Casey, Clanchy, Creagh, Can- - tillon, Comyn, Gould, Fitzgerald, Fitzgibbon, Kennedy, Fitzharris, Harold, Hartigan, Hurley, Hogan, Lacy, Lee or Leo, Mulqueen, Mulcahy, McMahon, McSheehy, Liston, Naish, Power, Purcell, OIBrien, O'Shaughnessy, OIMolloney, OIHea, O'Mahony, O'Madigan OIHeffernan, OIHalloran, O'Dwyer, OIConnor, Ryan, Roche, Rochford, Ronan, Russell, Rawley, Stacpoole, Stritch, Sarsfield, Scanlan, Sullivan, Sheehan, Walsh, White, Wolfe. Sir Nicholas Comyn was a notable citizen of Limerick, who had 1 to transplant with many of his neighbours. His certificate describes him as "Sir Nicholas ~ombn, of the Liberties of Limerick, numb at the side of his body of a dead palsy; his Lady Katherine Comyn, aged thirty-four years, flaxen hair, middle stature ; and one maid servant, Honor McNamara, aged 20 years, browne hair, middle stature, etc." Ignatius Stacpoole, of Limerick, is described as an "Orphan, aged I I years, flaxen hair, full face, low stature. Katherine, sister of the said Ignatius, 8 years, flaxen hair, ft~ll face, having no substance to relieve them." The following is the certificate of a County Limerick gentleman of position, whc se property was confiscated :- '' We, the Commissioners, do hereby certify that Sir David Eourke, of Kilpeacon in the Barony of Small County and County of Limerick, hath, upon the 19th of November, 1653, delivered unto us, in writing, the names of himself and such other persons as are to remove with him, with the quantities and qualities of their stock and tillage, the contents whereof are as follows, viz. : the said Sir David Bourke, adged 64 years, middle stature, brown hair; the Lady Catherine Bourke, adged 58 years, white hoary hair; Oliver Bourke, son of the said Sir David, adged 38 years, middle stature, full face, black hair ; Edmund Bourke, another son, adged 37 years, middle stature, sick of the body, red hair; Patrick Bourke, another son of the said Sir David's, adged 35 years, tall stature, flaxen hair ; David Bourke, another son, adged 28 years, middle stature, flax~n hair." Then comes a list of their followers and servants, " their substance one plough of garans, tenn cows, six acres of barley sowed, the substance whereof we believe to be true." (5) The old Anglo-Irish families of the Pale-Butlers, Fitzgeralds, Barnwalls, Cheevers, Dillons, Cusacks, Lutterells, Plunkets, Talbots, Nettervills, &c, whose ancestors, from the time of King John, held the Pale for the English against the mere Irish, were now, in the depth of winter, forced to transplant into Connaught, with their families. They sent petitions and remonstrances to the Government without avail, their lands were required for the motley crew of Adventurers and soldiers, and they had to go. The old native inhabitants of Limerick, and the colony of fisher men, claimed exemption from transplanting, on the ground that they had always assisted the English garrison and that it was their interest which induced the City to surrender during Ireton's seige. These were the descendants of Danish and English traders who inhabited the English-town, and who considered themselves the aristoqacy of Limerick, and who looked down on the mere Irish who dwelt in the Irishtown. But the Crom~ellians treated all alike, and many of their names may be found in the list of the transplanted from the " prescint of Limerick." Here is a characteristic petition from the children of a Limerick Alderman, in 1654 :-" The humble petition of Christina Roche, dustace Kate and John Roche, the children of Alderman Jordan Roche, decd. : sheweth that Alderman Jordan Roche dyed seized of a vast real estate to the value of ~2000 a year, and likewise of a considerable personal estate, all which devolved and came to the publique. That (5) Book of Transplanters' Certificates, County Limerick.

8 your poor petitioners are in a sad and deplorable condition for want of sustinance, or mayntenance, and have nothing to live on, but what they can earne by their needles and by washing and wringing, and they pray to be allowed something out of their father's estate." Alderman Roche lived at Newcastle, that ivy-clad ruin Limerick people know so well, and was owner of the surrounding lands. It was on the Cathdic nobility and gentry that the blow chiefly fell, as most of the peasantry who survived the civil war hkd left the country. Forty thousand Irishmen went into the services of the Kings of Spain, France, and Poland, and served with distinction in the low countries and elsewhere on the continent of Europe. The Bristol sugar merchants had entered into an agreement with the Government for the transportation of men, women and children, to the sugar plantations in the West Indies. In a few years 6,400 natives of Ireland were shipped to the sugar plantations under the warrant of the Puritan Parliament. It is on record that in the month of October, 1655, rooo young men and 1000 girls were shipped from the port of Galway, consigned to merchants in Jamaica. T e remnant of natives who still survived all this were not sent to CJ-t " h or Connaught," for the following reasons, (6) given by Colonel Ingoldsby, Governor of Limerick :- (I) "They were useful as earth-tillers and herdsmen. (2) "Deprived of their clergy, and living among the English settlers, they wduld become, eventually, Protestants, and loyal subjects to the Parliament. (3) "The gentry in Connaught, deprived of their followers, must either starve, or, in time, become peasants themselves." On the 26th September, 1653, an Act was passed for the settlement of Ireland. The towns, church lands and tithes, were reserved by the Puritan Parliament for their own purposes. They abolished all Church dignitaries-archbishops, Bishops, Deans, &c. They reserved, also, the counties of Dublin, Kildare, Cork, and Carlow. The rest of Ireland was to be divided between Adventurers and soldiers. It was found that the amount due to the Adventurzrs was &36o,ooo, and the arrears of pay due to the soldiers ~1,550, ts were to be drawn by a (6) Threnodia Iiiberno-Catholics, &C., p. 25. committee representing both classes. In the county Limerick ~30,000 worth of land was set out for Adventurers at the rate of 81- per acre. Dr. William Petty, physician to the forces, entered into an Agreement, dated December ~~th, 1654, for the surveying and mapping of the escheated lands in Ireland. He was to receive for every thousand plantation acres of profitable land surveyed 7 3s. qd. For every thousand acres of bog and mountain, called unprofitable land, 3, and the same price for church lands. In addition, he was to receive a sum of Lrooo for the maps. The work was contracted to be completed in I thirteen months from February ~st, This is the history of the well-known Down survey," which was completed in the county Limerick in The survey and maps are to be seen in the Public Record Office, Dublin. Dr. Petty employed over one thousand assistants in this great work, chiefly disbanded soldiers, who were placed under skilled surveyors. Petty's chief assistant in this survey was 'I'homas i'aylor, ancestor of the Marquis of Headfort. who got extensive grants of land in the neighbourhood of Kells, county Meath. A great part of the county Limerick was surveyed and mapped under the supervision of Mr. Thomas Jackson. According to his survey the total escheated lands in this county amounted to zgo,ooo acres, or one half of the whole county. In the Eooks of Survey and Distribution the names of the old proprietors and grantees are given, the townlands with the area, the parishes and baronies. (The maps are, when compared with the Ordnance Survey maps, found to be wonderfully accurate.) According to this survey there were about ~o,ooo acres of church lands in this county, and the unprofitable land amounting to about onetenth of the whole. The commons attached to the adjacent townlands and hamlets were not assessed against the grantees in their patents. In July, 1656, the first allotment of lands in this county was made to the soldiers. The first regiments disbanded were the horse regiments of Generals Ludlow, Sir Charles Coote, Colonel Ingoldsby and Colonel Pretty. Colonel Chidley Coote's regiment got assignments of land in the barony of Coshlea, at the rate of 121- an acre, equal to A600 for rooo acres. Colonel Richard Coote got an assignment in Small county, at 161- an acre, and Major Ormsby and Major King, in Coshma, at 141-

9 an acre. General Jones and the officers of the Life Guards got grants in Clanwilliam, at the rate of 221- the acre. The country was in a deserted and wasted condition at this timea complete wilderness. Most of the soldiers became discontented and refused to settle on their lots, and were glad to sell their debentures to their officers for the price of their passage back to England. One of' the grievances of the soldiers was that they were forbidden to marry the Irish girls, under severe penalties. Another cause of discontent was the great increase of wolves and Tories. Wolves had become so numerous tha: the Governors of each district were directed to fix certain days for wolf-hunting, and a reward of 5 was offered for the head of every wolf brought to the local authority. Wolves had become so troublesome about Dublin that the Government, in 1653, gave Captain Edward Piers a lease of the lands of Dunboyne, valued at 543 8s. 8d. a year, on the condition of maintaining a pack of hounds for wolf-hunting, with "a knowing huntsman, two men, and one boy." He was bound to bring in a certain number of wolf-heads, as stipulated in his lease, for the next five years, under a penalty of 5 for every wolf's head short of the number. This, I think, is the first mention of a regular public pack of hounds in Ireland. In the first United Parliament, which met at Westminster in 1657, Captain Morgan, M.P. for the County Wicklow, complained of the heavy assessment the counties had to bear owing to the cost of hunting and paying for the capture of the three burdensome beasts, " the Tory, the Wolf, and the Priest," pnd prayed relief. (7) The Tories were the natives who refused to transplant and were outlawed, -4s a rule, they were led by some gentleman who had been despoiled of his estate. They kept up a constant guerrilla war against the new settlers. Large sums were given by the Government for the capture of the leaders, and 5 for the head of every Tory brought in to the local authorities. No doubt, the folldwing nursery rhyme is familiar to many :- l' Johnny Dory, what is your story? I went to the wood and shot a Tory. I went to the wood and shot another : Was it the same, or was it his brother? " I hunted him in, I hunted him out, Three times through the wood, and about and about, 'Till out of a hush I spied his head, So I levelled my gun and shot him dead." (7) Parliamentary Diary, 10th June, Although large sums were spent in Tory-hunting, the race did not become extinct until the middle of the eighteenth century. The baronies were heavily fined by a blood tax in this warfare. For every Cromwellian officer killed by the Tories, a fine of 100 was levied on the barony, and for every soldier or settler the sum of 20. The priests who had escaped hanging, or transportation to the West Indies, were interned in the Isles of Aran and Inishboffin, which were made penal settlements for the occasion. Each priest was allowed sixpence per day for his maintenance. A small body of Quakers settled in the city of Limerick in 16~2. They were looked on by the Cromwellians as a L'particularly dangerous people." Colonel Ingoldsby, the Governor, was directed by the Government to " secure divers persons commonly called Quakers, who were disturbing the congregations of sober Christians, and discouraging divers godly ministers of the Gospel, and thereby bringing into contempt the ordinances of God." After the restoration of Charles 11. the old proprietors entertained great hopes of getting back, at least, a portion of their ancient estates, which most of them had lost by joining the King's side against the Parliament. However, from the first they were doomed to disappointment. The Irish Parliament met on the 8th of May, It was composed of 260 members, principally representatives of the new Cromwellian burgesses, who now inhabited the towns. The counties had only 64 representatives in the House of Commons. Limerick County was represented by Sir William King, of Kilpeacon, and Robert Oliver of Clonodfoy ; Limerick City by Standish Hartstonge and Gerald Fitzgerald ; Kilmallock by John Bridges and Rrooke Bridges ; Askeaton by Richard Southwell and Peter Pett. The House of Lords was composed of 72 Protestant Peers, many of them of recent creation, and 24 Bishops, with only 21 Catholic Peers. The first act of this Parliament was to decree that no member would be qualified to sit and vote unless he had first taken the oaths of supremacy and conformity. This act got rid of the Catholic minority, and it is not surprising, therefore, that there was no redress for the ancient forfeiling proprietors. It was decreed that all Adventurers and soldiers in occupation of confiscated lands on the first day of January, 1660, were not to be disturbed.

10 In 1662 a Court of Claims was established to hear and decide the cases of certain " Innocent Papists.'' This Court had authority to sit for twelve months, but, as a matter of fact, they only sat from the month of February to the following August; and out of 4,000 claims listed for hearing they only gave decisions, mostly favourable, in 6,80 cases. The rest got no redress. \ The Acts of "Settlement and Restoration," which passed between 1661 and 1665, settled finally the land question of that period. Among those whose claims had not been settled up to'this were the " '49 officers," i.e., those officers who had served the King in Ireland previous to the 5th June, They were now br~ught in under the Acts of Settlement, and got grants of lands and houses in the towns, which had not previously been disposed of. This assignment was made through trustees specially appointed for the purpose. Captain John Croker, of Skule Castle, was one of the trustees appointed. The sum of 3,000 was due to him for arrears of pay. He bought Eallynagarde for this sum from Colonel Randal Clayton, who had got a grant of it for an arrear of 478. It was the property of Theobald Bourke. Among the Restorees of Charles II., under the Acts of Settlement, were the following " Innocent Papists " from the County Limerick :-Lord Castle. eonnell, Lord Brittas, Piers Lacy, of Bruff; Sir Edmund Fitzharris, of Clonodfoy, and Major Oliver Fitzharris ; John Fox, of Bulgaden ; Terence O'Bryan, of Pallasgrealr ; Dermot O'Sheahan, of Rathmore ; Colonel Pierce Walsh, of Abington ; John White, of Loughill; Robert Southwell, of Rathkeale ; an4 Thady Quin. Lord Castleconnell and Piers Lacy had shared the King's exile. Having made an accurate copy of the Book of Survey and Distribution for the County Limerick, I shali give in detail, at the end of this paper, the portion dealing with the South Liberties of Limerick, and can, from time to time, should circumstances permit, publish the survey and distribution of the escheated lands in this county, barony by barony. The North Liberties of Limerick are omitted from the Down Survey books, as Sir William Petty was determined this valuable tract should fall to his own lot. He very candidly tells the story (8) himself. Sir Jerome Sankey having brought the complaint of Captain Winkworth to (8) Larcom's l' Down Swvey." whom 1453 acres in the North Liberties of Limerick were allotted, before Parliament : " Why then, Mr. Speaker (said Sir Jerome), there's Captain Winkworth. Captain Winkworth came with an order for the Liberties of Limerick, but the Doctor said, 'Captain, will you sell? Will you sell? ' 'No,' said the Captain, 'it is the price of my blood.' 'I'hen said the Doctor, "Tis bravely said : why then, my noble Captain, the Liberties pf Limerick are meat for your master,' meaning the Lord Deputy." Petty had got the following order made in Dublin, 25th February, 1657, which assigns him the coveted lands. '' We assign to the aforksaid Dr. Wm. Petty and his heirs and assigns, the several lands hereafter mentioned, which lands contain in all 1453 acres one rood, lyeing in the North Liberties of the City of Limerick, and are in satisfaction of A653 19s. 3d., for certain service done since the 5th day of June, I 649.'' Sir William Petty married, in 1667, Elizabeth, dlughter of Sir Hardress Waller, of Castletown. He left two sons and one daughter. Both!Sons succeeded to the peerage of Shelbourne, conferred on Petty's widow, but, both dying without issue, his vast estates came, in due course, to the descendants of his only daughter, who had married the first Earl of Kerry, from whom the present Marquis of Lansdowne descends, and who now owns the North Liberties of Limerick, which his ancestor acquired in the manner stated above. This completes a very cursory sketch of the great revolution in the ownership of land in this county, 250 years ago. About two-thirds gf the county of Limerick changed hands in the two great revolutions I have sketched-the Desmond and the Cromwellian settlements. Before the "rising" of 1641 the Catholic gentry were owners of nearly ninetenths of the land in this country ; after the Cromwellian 'settlement they only retained about one-third of their ancient patrimony. It is, however, a mistake to assume that the farmers and peasantry suffered in like manner. The Cromwe:lian settlers, like their English predecessors, the " Undertakers," found it impossible to work their lands profitably without the assistance of the natives, consequently they very soon commenced to let their lands "farm-ways " to the Irish, and very often accepteci as tenants the old proprietors or their descendants. 'The Irish Government did their best to prevent the acquisition of land

11 ----p-----p I 8 by the old Irish, but without much success. On the accession of James 11. the land of the country was practically in the occupation~of the native Irish, but only as tillers of the soil. Lord Clarendon, was Lord Lieutenant in 1686, says that few of the Adventurers and soldiers then remained in the country. Many contemporary writers lament that the children of the settlers could only speak Gaelic, and bitterly complain that owing to daily association with the natives and intermarriage with Irish girls, " Old Noll's Ironsides " had degenerated into mere Irishmen, and here I part company with the Cromwellian settlers, undergoing the old proces of becoming "more Irish than the Irish themselves." THE CROMWELLIAN SETTLEMENT OF THE COUNTY OF LIMERICK. BY JAMES GRENE BARRY, D.L., M.R.S.A.I. PART THE SECOND. r Having given the history of the Down Survey in the First Part of the Cromwellian Settlement of the County Limerick, it only remains for me to give in detail, from " The Books of Survey and Distribution," the transfer of the escheated lands, townland by townland, and parish by parish, in each barony of the County. The total area of Ireland, exclusive of bogs and loughs, according to this survey, was 10,500,ooo acres, Irish Plantation Measure. Of this there were 1,500,ooo acres of mountain and coarse grazing, and about 1,500,000 waste and commons, leaving 7,500,ooo profitable or arable land. It was estimated that English settlers and Protestants held about 2,000,000 acres, and that the Glebe ar~d Church lands amounted to 300,000 acres, leaving the area of lands escheated at 5,200,000?cres, plantation measure. The Down Survey gives the total area of the County Limerick at 375,320 acres, I.P.M., of which amount about ~30,ooo were escheated. The following return of the baronies, surveyed under the supervision of Mr. Thomas Jackson, gives an example of how the lands were classified. l Baronies I P~ofitable South Liberties A. R.

The district between the mouth of the Maigue and Limerick was called after them CaoiZle-$2~-Chos?zanzhagh, and sometimes Easa<yh Luinzinegh, the Wilderness of Limerick. The present harony was known as Eschluona, previous to the 14th century. In A.D it was the manor of William de Burgho, Governor of Limerick, whose wife was Eva, daughter of Donald Mor O'Brien, King of Limerick. Donogh Cairbreach O'Brien got a grant from King Tohn, A.D. 1211, of the Lordship of Carrig-o-gnnnell at the yearly rent of sixty marks. 'The barony took its present name from Brian duff O'Brien, third son of Conor O'Brien, Thanist of Thomond, who lived at Carrig-o-gunnel1 in the 14th century. (2) " I.P." after the name of an old Proprietor meant that he claimed as an " Innocent Papist." (3) This was John Boorchier, fifth Earl of Bath, who died without issue in 1654, leaving the Lough Gur estates to his widow, Rachael, daughter of the Earl of Westmoreland. This estate was granted to his father, General Sir George Eourchier, in aw a 00. LIMITED, LIMERICK.

The O'Connell tribe were driven out of this district by the ~itzgeralds of Desmond before A.D The Earls of Desmond owned the whole of this district for nearly 400 years. In 1583 the lands in this Earony were confiscated and parceled out among "The Undertakers."-(See " Limerick in the Reign of Queen ~lizabeth," by J. G. Barry, Journal Limerlck Field Club, 1897.) The Desmond Rental of O'Connelloe, 1452, gives a detailed accopnt of their demesne lands, &C., in this Barony. Again under the Cronlwellian Settlement a great portion of this Barony changed hands. In the eighteenth century Connelroe was subdivided for fiscal purposes into the present Baronies, Upper and Lower Connelloe, Shanid and Glenquin.

48 THE CROMWELLIAN SETTLEMENT OF THE COUNTY OF LIMERICK. BY JAMES GRENE BARRY, M.R.S.A.I. (Vice-Pres. for County Limerick N. M.A.S.) CONCLUSION. Macaulay, in his Histoy of England, states that : "IN Ireland, during the reign of Charles 11, existed feuds, compared with which, the hottest animosities of English politicians were lukewarm. The enmity between the Irish Cavaliers and the Irish Roundheads was almost forgotten in the fiercer enmity which raged between the English and the Celtic Races. The interval between the Episcopalian and the Presbyterian seemed to vanish when compared with the interval which separated both from the Papist. During the civil troubles, the greater part of the Irish soil had been transferred from the vanquished nation to the victors. To the favour of the crown, few either of the old or the new occupants had any pretensions. The despoilers and the despoiled had, for the most part, been rebels alike. The Government was soon perplexed and wearied by the conflicting claims and mutual accusations of the two incensed factions. Those colonists among whom Cromwell had portioned out the conquered territory, and whose descendants are still called Cromwellians, asserted that the aboriginal inhabitants were deadly enemies of the English nation under every dynasty, and of the Protestant religion in every form. They described and exaggerated the atrocities which had disgraced the insurrection of Ulster; they urged the king to follow up with resolution the policy of the Protector; and they were not ashamed to hint that there would never be peace in Ireland till the old Irish race should be extirpated. The Roman Catholics extenuated their offence as best they might, and expatiated in piteous language on the severity of their punishment, which, in truth, was not lenient. They implored Charles not to confound the innocent with the guilty, and reminded him that many of the guilty had atoned for their

49 fault by returning to their allegiance, and by defending his rights against the murderers of his father. The Court, sick of the importunities of the two parties, neither of which it had any reason to love, at length relieved itself from trouble by dictating a compromise. That system, cruel, but most complete and energetic, by which Oliver had proposed to make the Island thoroughly English, was abandoned. The Cromwellians were induced to relinquish a third part of their acquisitions. The land thus surrendered was capriciously divided among claimants whom the Government chose to favour. But great numbers who protested that they were innocent of all disloyalty, and some persons who boasted that their loyalty had been signally displayed, obtained neither restitution or compensation, and filled France and Spain with outcries against the injustice and ingratitude of the House of Stuart." (MatauZay's Uz'sfory of England-Vol. I, p. 92.) The allotment of lands was vested in a Board sitting in London, who, like the Estate Commission of to-day, depended on local subordinates for laying out and partitioning the allotments. As may be imagined, this system did not give satisfaction, and complaints were many and allegations of bribery and corruption not infrequent. Sir Nicholas Crispe had adventured over A3000 for the pacification of Ireland, but only 1000 worth of land ifell to his share in the County Limerick. His Petition is as follows :--l The Petition of Sir Nicholas Crispe Knt. " Sheweth-That your petitioner having a Lott for his adventure in the barony of Connello in Ireland, those that had share in the same barony with him (who were men of power in that ill time), being to divide the said barony into four equal pa~ts, which was done, each fourth part to be subdivided into four equal quarters which, contrary to all justice and equity, in that quarter where your petitioner's lott fell they divided the one half into three parts, which should have been by a cross line into equal quarters as by a character thereof under the hand of the Sirveyor hereunto annexed appears. By which unequal doing, contrary to order and practise, they left your Petitioner his proportion in a Bogg and coarse land, which your petitioner cannot let for more than the Qult rent, which is his division for A ~ooo. "It is therefore, his most humble prayer that your Majesty will be graciously pleased to give order to the Right Honble. the Commissioners, that by the Bill now preparing are to regulate the Adventurers interests in Ireland, that there may be a view had of this indirect dealing, and that right be done the petitioner therein." "Referred (8th December, 1664), to the Duke of Ormond and those other honourable persons who are appointed to assist his Grace in the consideration of the Bill (of Explanation) to be prepared for the Settlement of Ireland."-to report Vol. F. Record Tower, Dublin Castle, p The worthy knight died before his petition was heard, as his widow, Dame Anne Crispe, appears as grantee under the Act of Settlement. She obtained lands in the Parishes of Rathronan, Kilscanlan and 1,oughill. When the civil war broke out in 1641, the gentry of the County Limerick threw in their lot with their fellow Catholics-or, as usually designated in the official language of the day, " Papists." There were, however, many Protestant colonies scattered throughout the county, these settlements represented the undertakers of Elizabeth's reign and their tenants. Their castles were well garrisoned and provisioned- Courtney held a strong position at Newcastle West; Southwell and Herbert at Rathkeale; Dame Elizabeth Dowdall held Kilfinny Castle for six months against the forces of the Confederates. She states that she had a garrison of forty horse and one hundred foot soldiers, in her remarkable, though highly-coloured, account of this siege, which is reproduced from the original depositions in T.C.D. Library, by the Rev. J. Dowd, in his " History of the County Limerick." Dame Anne,Waller, wife of Sir Hardress Waller, made a gallant defence of Castletown during her husband's absence in England The Earl of Kildare held Croom Castle ; The Earl of Bath, Loughgur ; and Dame Barbara Browne, Aney (Hospital). This lady was the daughter of John Boyle, Bishop of Cork, and married Sir John Browne, Knt., son of Sir Thomas Browne, an Englishman, who married the only daughter of the " Master of Aney," and thus got the broad lands of the Commandery of the I '

50 Knights Hospitallers of Aney. Dame Barbara's grand-daughter brought this rich inheritance into the Kenmare family by her marriage with Nicholas, second Lord Kenmare. In her deposition she gives a graphic description of the raids made on her by her neighbours-lacy of Carrigkettle, Hurley of Knocklong, O'Brian of I 'uharra, and I3aggot of Baggotstown, and she claims A3,800 for her losses in stock, corn, furniture, and personal effects. She finally took refuge with Dame Waller, and gives the fol'owing accoun't of the siege of Castletown "She also saith, that the castle of Castletown, where she fled for refuge, was besieged on the 26th of March, 1642, by Luke Purcell of Croagh, Lieut-General; Captain John Fitzgerald, second brother of Thomas Fitzgerald of Glyn Esquire ; Lieut-Col. Garrett I'urcell of Curragh, and divers others to the number ot two or three hundred rebels, who lay close to the castle, so that the besieged could not stir out ; during which time she often heard the besiege15 say that they had the king's authority for what they did. During the siege one-thomas Hill, shoemaker, of Castletown-was killed by a shot from the besiegers, and at length, for want of water, the place was yielded up, about the 13th of May following, having been besieged five weeks and odd days ; the quarter was for their lives and wearing clothes, and a few other commodities." Dame Barbara Browne goes on to say that " she was courteously 1 treated by Patrick Purcell, who conducted her with a sufficient convoy to Macroom where she was delivered into the hands of her nephew, Lord Castleconnell " Sir John Dowdall married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir l'homas Southwell of Rathkeale, in 1604, and settled on her the castles and lands of Kilfinny. Sir John purchased Castletown and other lands in Kenry in r 62 r. He died in I 623 His eldest daughter, Anne, married William Pigott, son of Sir John Pigott of Capard, Queen's County, and succeeded her mother. 'The Pigotts still hold the castle and lands of Kilfinny. The second daughter, Elizabeth, married Sir Hardress W~ller before 1640, and got as a dowry Gastletown and the other lands in Kenry. This was confirmed by a grant to her from the king, the of which I have seen. The following is a summary : - "Grant of 15th Charles 1 (1640) to Dame Elizabeth Waller wife of Sir Hardress Waller Knight second daughter of Sir John Dowdall of Kilfinny, of the manor and lands of Castletown, Cappagh, Beigh Castle, &c. Castletown created a manor to enclose 600 acres as deer park in capite at one Knight's fee reat of estate at rent of 120 to the crown remainder to issue and then to each of the four sisters. Grantee to keep for the service of the crown three well armed horsemen and twelve footmen. To settle on the estate at least 21 English freeholders and not to have more Irish tenants on a longer tenure than 2 I years. The large grants of land which Sir Hardress Walier received for his services were excluded by the Act of Settlement, and he himself was outlawed, but his wife's property was not interfered with, and after some years he was allowed to return to Castletown.

The following names also appear :-Burkes, O'Briens, Barrys, Ryans, O'Gradys, Ilundons, Creaghs, Naish, Sheehy, White, Hurley, Rawley, Clancy, Dwyer, Kirby, Fitzgibbon, O'Hea, Hynes, etc. Further confiscations took place 'after the Treaty of Limerick, and William of Orange Nassau gave the l~nds granted to the Duke of York (James 11) to his favourites, both hale and female. On the king's death, Parliament passed an Act of Resumption, and all these lands were sold hy public auction in Ihblin, in This is known as the O Chichester House Sales. The documents connected with these sales are preserved in the Public Record Office, Dublin. The Cromwellian Settlement appeared a, permanent one, as the years passed the new owners of the soil of our county waxed powerful and wealthy, and by the industry of their tenants the productiveness of the land increased and rents went up. However, by the Repeal of the Corn Laws and the great famine of 1847, a crisis came to many landlords ; their estates became bankrupt and interest on mortgages could not be met. Their estates were compulsorily sold under the Encumbered Estates Act at prices ranging from seven to twelve years' purchase. The Landed Estates Court Act followed and a new class of landlord appeared, generally successful professional and business men, who brought the commercial spirit into their dealings with their tenants. They were not an improvement or, those whom they succeeded, who came to be known as "Th' ould stock," to distinguish them from the new corners. Rackrenting and evictions brought forth the land agitation, which, in our own time, produced Mr. Gladstone's remedial legislation and culminated in the recent Land Purchase Acts, which have transferred the ownership of the land from the landlords to the occupiers. The landless gentry retain their demesnes, and their former tenants-the men with the old Norman and Celtic names-get possession of the land which their forefathers fought for and lost. A peaceful revolution-and let us hope a permanent one, and that it will bring us peace, concord and toleration, so that all may unite in helping to promote our country's prosperity; by working and utilising to the utmost the "unearned increment" of her fertile soil ; by reviving and encouraging home industries, and thus stimulating local trade, so that we may see at no distant time a successful development of our natural resources-a nation's true wealth-now lying dormant and unproductive.
