Charles A Hanna "The Scotch Irish"
It has details on the Great Plantation of James I/VI, including all the major Scots "undertakers" as they called them and where they had their land. Part of the deal was you had to develop it, so the English Gov. sent out officials to check. These list everything down to new wells. Minor tenants are alas not named.
In addition to English settlers, Cavan was Irish. Under Derry in the Carew Manuscripts we have "Derry: Next we come to Derry, where we saw the church well slated and repaired...A thatched house wherein Mr. Wray dwelleth...Two fair lime-kills. A fair wharf of 300 foot long...." In1619 they sent out Nicholas Pynnar to do a survey. Under English Undertakers (Vol II pg 537) he lists many in Armagh as well. "1500 acres, John Dillon: brick house half built; no bawn; two villages; 3 freeholders; 26 lessees; able to produce 40 men with arms."
