After the war a new King, James I of England and VI of Scotland, allowed O’Neill and O’Donnell to return to their lands. But some places, like Lifford and Derry were given to former soldiers and English laws were increasingly introduced. This memorial of 1622 to Sir Richard Hansard and his wife Anne in Lifford church explains that he was originally from Lincolnshire, educated at Cambridge and then became a soldier. He served during the Nine Years War and became governor of Lifford at its end. James gave him permission to found a corporate town at Lifford as part of the Ulster Plantation in 1610.
