Crucial to understanding the ways in which the province was transformed is an awareness of the impact of the plantations, both official and unofficial. First published in 1975, this updated and expanded edition of Plantations in Ulster makes available to a new generation of researchers R.J. Hunter's meticulous examination of documents relating to Ulster in the early 1600s.

R. J. Hunter

Robert John (Bob) Hunter was born in rural Meath in 1938 and was educated atWesleyCollegeandTrinityCollege,Dublin. After graduation in 1960, he began research on the Ulster Plantation in the counties ofArmaghand Cavan, 1608-41. This interest in thePlantation, and early modern Irish history generally, was to dominate his life.

In 1963 he was appointed Assistant Lecturer in History atMageeCollege, thus beginning an association with the city ofDerrythat was to continue for the rest of his life. The creation of what was to become theUniversityofUlsteralso saw him teaching regularly in Coleraine.

Through his meticulous research, he developed an encyclopedia knowledge of his subject, traversing such themes as the development of towns, the role of the English planters, the history of trade and migration and the intellectual and cultural life ofUlstermore generally.

Though his untimely death in 2007 was to cut short his ambitions for further writing, he was nevertheless to leave behind more than thirty articles, essays, reviews, etc., which were the result of painstaking study conducted with a careful eye for detail and relevance.
