Plantations- native Ireland who lost land.
Hello my name is Dave and I am a native Irish who lost land in the ulster planation. I own land under the earl O’Neil. He along with the earl of Tyrone began a nine year was against the English crown. They had support from the Spanish but unfortunately were defeated by the crown in the battle of kinsale in 1601. The start of my troubles was when due to pressure from other earls O’Neil left in1607 in the flight of the earls and was declared a traitor and my land was confiscated. It was then surveyed and divided into church land and crown land.
I along with a lot of other true Irishmen resent these English. I joined the wood kerns and hid in nearby forest and attack the settler’s home. We have discorded a pattern in their defence system. If its 1000 acers, there is only 1 bawn. If its 1500 acers there’s a dawn and a stone house and in 2000 acers there’s a bawn and a defence tower. This makes it harder for us to attack.
The king of England, king James 1 said that they wanted to create a ‘loyal protestant population’ in Ireland by getting rid of all us Catholics. That they wanted to get more money for the crown and pay soldiers and officials who fought in the 9yr war and organised the plantations.
Or intelligence has told us that there are three different groups who have land. Undertakers, who are normally Scottish or English Protestants. Servitors, solders and officials of the crown. And the ‘loyal Irish’
It is now the year 1641 and there is said to be over 40000 protestents in Ireland, but we keep them separate from us Irish. We also recently had a large scale attack and massacred at least a 1000 of them. There also building new fancy towns, with diamond middle and streets leading off, surrounded with a stone wall so it’s impossible to attack. There introducing new faring methods of more crop productions and less cows.
