For anyone still monitoring this site, I came across a wonderful book: Stolen Village : A Thrilling Account of the 17th-century Raid on Ireland by the Barbary Pirates by Des Ekin(an Irish journalist.) It gives a very detailed account of Jan Jansen's raid on Baltimore, Ireland.
I was told of the book, and purchased it, while visiting the Heritage Center in Skibbereen, Ireland, about 10 miles from Baltimore. The Museum Manager was excited to meet a descendant of the famous pirate and explained that, after the sack of Baltimore, the remaining residents of Baltimore went up river to avoid further raids. Those people founded the town of Skibereen! She is hoping to have an exhibition on the raid sometime soon at the Museum.
