John Wakefield listed as one of the "Forty Nine" officers granted land-Cromwell's army

From a listing in John O'Hart's "The Irish landed gentry when Cromwell came to Ireland" on page 372 begins a listing of the officers-on page 409 John Wakefield is listed. These officers are according to the book "Cromwell in Ireland, a history of Cromwell's Irish Campaign" by Denis Murphy pages 211-259-service June 1644-June 5, 1649-thus the name-"when the King (Charles II?) I assume Charles I was executed-returned from exile and with him came many officers who had been driven out of Ireland by Cromwell for their loyality-Protestant Royalist officers who had served the King before June 5, 1649 or the 49 Officers. By the Act of Settlement they were granted the lands that had been assigned by the Commonwealth for the '49 Arrears-an Act of Indemnity was passed 7th June 1654-on behalf of these officers-for their arrears they were granted land in Ireland. Are there any records in the British Empire for these officers? And were they were settled? Thanks, coetting57@hotmail.com
