A History of Silence is a book about a country and a broken landscape. It's about the devastation in Christchurch, after the 2011 earthquake. It's about how easily we erase stories we find inconvenient. It's about the fault lines which that cataclysmic event opened up in Lloyd Jones' understanding of his own family history.

The Irish and Anglo-Irish landed gentry : when Cromwell came to Ireland, or, a supplement to Irish pedigrees

July 7, 2014
O'Hart, John, author.
Berwyn Heights, Md. : Heritage Books, an imprint of Heritage Books, Inc., 2013.
xvii, 773 pages ; 22 cm
Facsimile reprint. Originally published: Dublin, M.H. Gill & Son, 1884.
"This edition was previously published by Heritage Books as a two-volume set."--Verso title page.
"Reaching as far back in genealogical records as the second century AD, this weighty edition of Irish and Anglo-Irish pedigrees contains detailed family histories and a thirty-seven subject appendix with footnotes full of intriguing facts and anecdotes about the exploits of the earliest recorded natives of Ireland. The Irish ancestries of Allens, Arundells, Butlers, Crawfords, Fitzpatricks, Gladstones, Harts, O'Briens, O'Rourkes, O'Tooles, Parsons, Parnells, Sweneys, Warrens and many others have been collected from over fifty references, alphabetically arranged, and include (when applicable), a description of the family coat of arms. As the subtitle, "When Cromwell Came to Ireland," suggests, the appendix deals with documents related to that most tragic time in Irish history including, Regicides of Charles I; Persons Transplanted in Ireland in 1653 and 1654; Inrolments [sic] of the Certificates for Adventurers, Soldiers, etc., in Ireland, in the Commonwealth Period; and, Purchasers of Estates forfeited in Ireland under the Williamite Confiscations. For those seeking family ties many of these records locate displaced Irishmen in other parts of the world, including some who came to America. For the historian, this "work of marvelous research and industry," as a contemporary of the author's called it, illuminates a time whose influence is still felt in the modern world and for the genealogist it may provide the link between families found in the old world and the new."--Page [4] of cover.
