Any information on 1660 Petition by Inhabitants of Wexford?
« on: Saturday 27 February 16 07:47 GMT (UK) »
I was looking back through some historical newspaper articles online when I came across an item that is new to me. There was a reference to a 1660 petition to the king in London, after the death of Cromwell and the restoration of the monarchy, from the inhabitants of Wexford. Anyone heard of this, or know anything about it? Seems to me it would be interesting to locate it, as
- Presumably it contains the names of inhabitants of Wexford in 1660, and
- Has historical interest, with regard to the events of 1649 (Cromwellian massacre of Wexford).

Thanks

lots of information on this site.

Perhaps better to say lots of misinformation? That site belongs to the David Irvine school of historical studies. The NLI link does not work for me either, unfortunately,

Thanks. The Down Survey for Co. Wexford was published many years ago. I have a copy of the book. I also have many of the maps.

Have you tried writing to any of the local papers or the council?

No - my daughter is a student at Trinity at present, so I think I will commission her to do some lookups for me (once she gets through her exams).
