By one estimate as much as five-sixths of the Catholic Irish nation died or was transplanted beyond the Pale in the decade following Irelands surrender. Such is the stuff of the book at hand, John Prendergasts The Cromwellian Settlement of Ireland. Of specific genealogical importance, the researcher will find: (1) certificates or letters of dispensation naming a number of the Irish exiles and their families- (2) various account books, arranged by barony, identifying several hundred Adventurers and showing the location and value of the Irish land they were awarded- and (3) a list of more than 1,350 Adventurers (or their widows), giving their occupations and subscriptions.
