This publication brings together the work of a group of professional and amateur historians. Forty years ago a small group of people under the leadership of the late Mr Robert J. Hunter (University of Ulster) looked firstly at the Plantation of Ulster and then sought out information for this period relating specifically to the barony of Strabane. Under the scheme of Plantation, Strabane barony was allocated to undertakers from Scotland, the chief of whom was James Hamilton, 1st Earl of Abercorn. The settlement here was therefore overwhelmingly Scottish, rather than English. Chapters in this book look at Strabane in the pre-Plantation era, the background of the Scottish undertakers, the development of the town of Strabane, the impact of the Reformation, and the socio-economic conditions prevailing in the barony in the early seventeenth century.
