The Birth of Ulster
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (278 pages)
Author: C. Falls
Written by Cyril Falls this is a detailed account of the colonization of the northern province of Ireland, beginning with the attempts by Elizabeth I to calm the region, the rebellion of the tenants, and finally, the eviction of natives and the introduction of Protestants from England and Scotland, and therefore, the creation of the Plantation. It is an account of both the problems that precipitated the settlements and of the settlements themselves.
Naturally, such families as O'Neill, MacDonnell, O'Donnell, MacDonald, Maguire, Montgomery, Murray, O'Doherty, and other prominent Scottish and Ulster families play a significant role of events in the province from roughly the 1580s through the reign of James I.
