The Scots in Ulster story (facts) for anyone interested in the Ulster Plantation .I'm afraid you will have to copy and paste

When I moved to America for a while, I was surprised to find a whole area of historical study that has no real equivalent over here, i.e., the history of the "Scotch-Irish", their term for Scots who made their way to America after one or more generations in Ulster.

My DNA states Scots/Irish, and i have an aunt emigrated from Ireland to NY


in 1634 Sir William Brereton visited Irvine and his host, Mr James Blare (Blair) told him that more that ten thousand people had emigrated through Irvine to Ireland (forty sailing hours away) in circa 1632-1633, mainly from around Aberdeen and Inverness.
