Irish Jacobite forfeitures

County Antrim

1689-1699


Early in 1689 William III issued a declaration calling on the supporters of James II in Ireland to surrender, failing which their estates would be forfeited. After William's victory at the Boyne in 1690 further proceedings were taken in the Irish courts. Juries in a number of counties and cities returned bills of indictment for high treason in Ireland against more than two thousand individuals. Some of the indictments were followed by trial, but in the great majority of cases the persons concerned did not appear before the courts and were outlawed by default. After the war a series of prosecutions for high treason beyond the seas was instituted against more than a thousand individuals, most of whom had taken service in the French army and were outlawed by default.

The lists of outlawries are in Latin and record the names, addresses and status (or in some cases the occupations) of the outlaws, and have been translated and summarised for publication in J. G. Simmís article - Irish Jacobites. The spelling of surnames and names of places has been reproduced with corrections of obvious mistakes being shown in square brackets. Four listings have been transcribed below, which preserve the names of outlawries from County Antrim.
