Budge

The fictional Barnaby Budge, nephew of Doctor Simeon Pincher, the Puritan preacher, arrives in Ireland with Cromwell, expecting to receive Irish land in return for the money he had given the Parliamentary side in the Civil War against King Charles I of England. In many ways typical of their kind, the second book of Rutherfurd's Irish saga traces the fortunes of this Cromwellian settler family through to the commencement of the Irish Free State.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first escalator England had ever seen was installed at Harrods in London on November 16th, 1898 to much fanfare, fascination and fear ! The moving staircase was such a strange and scary experience for people that Harrods began offering smelling salts and Cognac at the top in order to calm people after their terrifying ride.
