Londonderry History

Compared to other parts of Ireland, Londonderry is still relatively new. It was created back when a charter was given by James 1 to the Irish Society to overlook the new plantation of the country. The date of the charter is set in 1613. This charter used the term ‘City of Londonderry and everything contained within’, which was the first recorded instance when Londonderry was recognized as a separate entity. However, the passing of the Local Government Act in 1898 meant that the ‘city’ was separated from the county for numerous administrative reasons, and became a separate county borough in 1899.

Throughout its history, Londonderry has historically been used for plantations. Thousands of acres have been set aside as per charters and official instructions, in order to prepare the area for plantations, and at present, numerous types of different plants are grown in Londonderry.

  1. It’s not actually new, the settlement on the Foyle was formed in ancient times by St Columba, around the 5th century i think, it was a part of the ancient Kingdom of Aileach.

    Every city is new in regards to is buildings, it’s not like the buildings were there in medieval times.
