Extracts from the Summonister’s Roll: the original records were lost in the destruction of the Public Record Office, Dublin in 1922. The details of the charges are not recorded, but many are believed to be for non-attendance. However, the importance of these records is that they record names and addresses within a few years of the Plantation of Ulster 1610-20.
