       NAMES OF THE CROMWELLIAN ADVENTURERS FOR LAND IN IRELAND
           From "Irish Pedigrees" by John O'Hart, vol 2
 "Adventurers for Land in Ireland" 

   

To finance Cromwell's campaign to put down the "rebellious" Irish who just could not accept English rule, Parliment devised a scheme where every person who contributed was to receive estates and manors of 1000 acres , and lands proportionatley for less sums.

In Ulster the price was 200 pounds, Connaught, 300, Munster, 450, Leinster 600. This Act of Subscription began in 1642 and in 1653 Ireland was declared subdued and the lands were given out. Some of the Adventurers had died or sold or assigned their Adventures. Some of the Adventurers were Irish, living in England or Ireland.

For the full name and address of each Adventurer the reader is directed to Prendergast's "Cromwellian Settlement of Ireland".

The list of surnames ONLY begins on page 699, vol. 2 of "Irish Pedigrees" by John O'Hart. The two vols. of this book are found in most genealogy libraries or available by Inter-Library Loan.
