NOTES

[1] Settlers: In the former Editions of this Work the new settlers in Ireland, after its invasion by the English in the twelfth century, were entered as "Anglo-Norman," or "English" Families. But we have found that many families whose names were so entered, are of Irish descent. It is, therefore, in our opinion, more correct to enter them as "New Settlers," than as Anglo-Norman or English.
