|These are the names of JACKSON men who were granted land in post-Cromwellian Ireland and were often known as "Adventurers". This was the investment system whereby wars were bankrolled by a mixture of either money or service (being a soldier). There are other records that include more names and/or other details. I have some on an earlier page called In the Beginning that I did years ago and which could benefit from an update.
