Some of the Palatines settled in the co. Carlow, some in the Queen's
County, some in the county Tipperary, some in the county Wexford,
some in the county Kerry, some in the county Limerick, etc. In Carlow
there is a hamlet named "Palatinetown;" so called, no doubt, from a
settlement of those refugees in that neighbourhood, under the auspices
of Mr. Burton, of Burton Hall, at the commencement of the 18th
century; but, with the exception of those of Keppel, Hanbridge, and a
few others, families of the Palatine race have disappeared from that
neighbourhood. Mr. Bogue, of Wells, of that period, was also a patron
of the Palatines; many of whom settled on his estate in the county
Wexford. In the county Limerick some of them settled at Castle
Oliver, near Kilfinnan, southwest of Knocklong, and others of them in
Ballyorgan, in the barony of Coshlea; but it would appear that the
Palatines were introduced upon the Adare's property, about A.D.
The following list contains names of the Palatine families that settled
in Ireland, those in italics are borne by tenants on the Adare estate:

The paste and copy would not allow me to put commas in so last names run together.
