Early 17th century Ulster Roll of Gaol Delivery

Eddie Connolly has commenced a transcription of names from the Ulster Roll of Gaol Delivery 1613-1618 on his Extracts of Reflection blog at http://anextractofreflection.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/ulster-roll-of-gaol-delivery-1613-1618.html.

The names were recorded in the Records of the Court of Exchequer, held at the Four Courts in Dublin, and names criminals who were tried and confined in various gaols in Ulster in the first few years of the Plantation of the early 17th century. The details have been extracted from the first edition of The Ulster Journal of Archaeology in 1853.

Great find!
