An early (c. 1598) map of Ulster by Francis Jobson
Commissioned by Lord Burghley, and created for Queen Elizabeth I and her ministers, this map sought to impose a new political structure in Ulster, thus effectively claiming the province for the Crown. While undertaking his surveys Jobson observed that Ulster was populated by “a most savage and rebellious people from whose cruelty God only by his divine power delivered me being every hour in danger to lose my head”, which is precisely what happened to Richard Barlett, a fellow cartographer, who was decapitated by locals in Donegal at around this time.
