Plantation of County Cavan
"There were three different categories of grantees, English and lowland Scottish undertakers (civilian groups, so called because of the conditions they undertook to fulfill), servitors (military officers and government officials who had been employed in Ireland), and Irish from the confiscated counties who were restored to some of the land. The servitors, who were, allowed to have Irish tenantry, were placed in the same baronies as the Irish grantees, it being considered that their military experience could be of value in such a juxtaposition
