Vol. III - Londonderry Lands and Families


The infamous Londoners' plantation and settlement of Ireland. Irish septs misplaced lands and the misdeeds of some of those who took the land.....

This volume tells the story of the Londoners settlement in Ireland. The settlement included the lands of: Loughinsholin, which had previously belonged to Tyrone; the old county of Coleraine which had belonged to O’Cahane; a small portion of the county of Donegal, including the island on which the city of Derry stood; and a small portion of County Antrim adjoining Coleraine. “These were handed over to twelve London companies for plantation ... and united to form the the present county of Londonderry (Derry)”.

The chief early Irish septs of this area were the O’Cahanes (Cahan or Kane), the O’Mullanes (Mullens or Mullins), the Magilliganes (Gilligan), and the McCloskies (McClusky).

Most of this work is concerned with land descriptions and the workings of the companies formed to settle the area, including the names of those concerned. As with the rest of this set there are many interesting footnotes. Among the footnotes in this volume is a detailed description of how to set up a rabbit warren, and a note telling us of the once plentiful deer and squirrels that had been hunted to extinction.

From the works of George Hill on the 17th century settlement of Ulster (1609+), The text includes enlightening 19th century commentary and footnotes which shed much light on family and county history. This book, “Londonderry Lands and Families”, also serves as volume 3 of the set entitled 'The Conquest of Ireland, an historical and genealogical account of the plantation in Ulster'. It is published on its own due to its importance to Historical and Genealogical Researchers.
