The terrys of cork: merchant gentry 1180-1644

kevin terry


THIS BOOK looks at Terrys of Cork between 1180 and 1644. Particular attention to the merchant and trading activities of the families over the generations in the City is provided. Their civic role is covered as well as settlement patterns in the surrounding countryside. This book will seek to establish some of the political, social, and economic reasons for their rise to prominence from the 16th century, their maintenance of this position for 250 years, through to their expulsion together with other Old English families in 1644.
