    This study is going to trace the fortune of one clearly identifiable group through that cauldron of Irish history known as the Cromwellian and Restoration land settlements. The group in question are the 1849 officers who, as will be seen in Chapters four and five, were especially pro ? settlement and explanation. This particular study is the first of its kind in that, not only is it going to correctly identify these 1649 officers, but it will also trace the exact methods by which they received satisfaction for the arrears of army pay they had incurred fighting for the royalist cause during the 1641-52 war. There is a definate need for such an identification because to date many historians have incorrectly ascribed the title of 1649 (or '49) officer to all those officers who served in Ireland, on either the king's or parliamentarian side, prior to 5 June 1649. As this study will shortly show, this rather loose ascription of the '49 officer title to all those who served in Ireland before 5 June 1649 Is factually incorrect because such a title can only be claimed by those Protestant officers who served the royalist cause particulary during the years; 1648-50.
