Flemish settlers with Derrick Huberts, Munster Plantation, late 1500's

Posted: 15 Jan 2012 2:00PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Croughs, Swigley
The book "Across the North Sea..." by Jelle van Lottum mentions "at least 40" Flemish cloth workers who settled on the Munster Plantation with Derrick Huberts.

Where could I find more on this group or other Flemish in Ireland, or Irish in Belgium, pre-1850?

I have Belgian gg-grandparents with Irish surnames (Croughs & Swigley) and am exploring theories on their origins.

Thanks
