Towards the close of Queen Elizabeth's reign, the Roman Catholics of Ul-
ster, under O'Neill, Prince of Ulster, known as" Hugh (Aodh), Earl of Tyrone
(Tvi-Owen), broke into rebellion, and after great resistance were Anally over-
come and their possessions in the northern counties of Ireland were escheated
to the Crown, by act of Parliament in the reign of James First. James deter-
mined to make these lands a Protestant settlement, and offered a large portion
to the city of Loudon for that purpose.

In 1609 the Mayor and citizens of London erected a company, known as the
Irish Society, obtained a charter in 1618, under which they acted until 1637,
when it was revoked by the Star Chamber Court. In 1662 a fresh charter was
granted under which the Society has acted in the present century.

The Society was principally composed of the twelve Great Livery Companies
and the small companies then existing.

One of the Great Companies was that of the Ironmongers, whose share was
held jointly with the companies of Brewers, Scrivners, Cowpers, Pewterers,
Barber Surgeons and Carpenters.


The assessment made upon the undertakers in 1613 was £40,000, oue twelfth
being on the Ironmongers and their associates above-mentioned, or £3334.
Their division of lands was numbered seven, and comprised some fifty town
lands, and was created a manor in 1615 called the " Lizard."

After the troubles caused by the Irish Rebellion of 1641 had subsided, the
manor house and all the dwellings of the company having been destroyed, and
in 1650 the Ironmongers, appointed Richard Hutchinson and Thomas Glover to
meet, with the committees of the other companies, as to the state of affairs, and
his signature appears signed to a remonstrance of the companies that year. In
the previous decade bstween 1612 and 1646 a series of subscriptions of Adven-
turers for Lauds in Ireland and for sea service at that period contained two
subscriptions of £100 each, by Richard Hutchinson, Ironmonger, of London.
In an account of the adventurers in the County of Tipperary, about 1654, to
Richard Hutchinson was assigned land in the Barony of Iffa and Offa in the south
part of Tipperary, in the West Middle, No. 4 division, lot 3.
