1599 - Many Irish people are working as servants in England
<< Back


We know this from a writer who wants to bring most of the rest of the Irish to England, to work as servants for English masters. That will leave Ireland free to be occupied by the English.

He says that the Irish in England make faithful servants. They work hard. The best gardeners, fruit growers and stable workers often turn out to be Irish. He also notes that they never refuse to do any work that they are given.
