Thomas Smith was a 16th-century English diplomat and scholar, unfortunately, he is most remembered for his attempts at leading failed colony in Ireland. At the request of the Queen, Elizabeth I granted him thousands of acres of land in Ulster, Ireland to establish a colony of English settlers. Due to political secrets being leaked, the colony was attacked and burned by the Clandeboye O’Neill people, living nearby.

 

‘Life of Thomas Smith’ is one of John Strype’s many famous biographies. Strype was known for his historical surveys of Cranmer, English Archbishops, and the city of Westminster. Though this biography of Smith is just as important because of the descriptions of the Irish Reformation, religious policies enacted by the Queen, and the desirable illustrations – family crests, charts, and a full-page map of Northern Ireland!
