Forfeiting Proprietors in Ireland under the Cromwellian Settlement, 1657

Search Records

This database of over 4000 entries details the names of those, mostly Irish Catholics, by county & barony, whose estates were confiscated as part of the Cromwellian settlement of the 1650s.

In some cases the actual locality was recorded, in others a note describing the person was included, for example "killed at the siege of Derry, as a beseiger" or "A Scotch Protestant, and in Arms agst, the State, in 1649".

Counties covered were Cavan, Cork, Donegal, Dublin, Fermanagh, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny, Londonderry, Longford, Louth, Mayo, Monaghan, Sligo, Tyrone and Wexford.

This list of names has been transcribed from O'Hart's Irish Landed Gentry when Cromwell Came to Ireland.
