Scotch Irish Pioneers In Ulster and America by Charles Knowles Bolton
This is a study of the
emigration from Northern Ireland of persons of Scottish and English descent. Chapters are devoted to the Scotch- Irish settlements
in Pennsylvania, Maryland, South Carolina, and Massachusetts and include valuable lists of early pioneers. In addition, considerable
space is devoted to the redoubtable settlers of Londonderry, New Hampshire. The book's extensive appendices contain lists
of great genealogical importance, including (1) petitioners for transport from Northern Ireland (1718); (2) hometowns of Ulster
families, with names of the Scotch-Irish in New England from presbytery and synod records (1691-1718); (3) members of the
Charitable Irish Society in Boston (1737-1743); (4) names of fathers in the Presbyterian baptismal records in Boston (1730-1736);
and (5) names of ships carrying passengers from Ireland to New England (1714-1720).
The Scotch-Irish. Or the Scot in North Britain, North Ireland and North America, 2 Volumes by Charles
This is the basic sourcebook on the Scotch-Irish in America, a massive compilation of source records pertaining
to the Scots who settled in the north of Ireland and their descendants in America. Volume I describes in detail the conditions
obtaining in both Scotland and Ireland at the time of the Scottish migrations to Ireland and America. Volume II contains a
detailed survey of Scotch Irish settlements in America in the 17th and 18th centuries, featuring lists and records referring
to tens of thousands of individuals. Also included in this volume are chapters devoted to Scottish names, Scottish families,
and locations of Scottish families in Ireland.
Scots-Irish Links, 1575-1725. 2 Volumes by David Dobson
This resource can help persons of Scotch-Irish
descent make the linkage first to Ulster and then back to Scotland. The work identifies some 1,200 Scotsmen who resided in
Ulster between the early 1600s and the early 1700s. Many of them were young men from Ireland many bearing Scottish surnames
attending universities in Scotland. Still other Scots-Irish links were apprentices, ministers, merchants, weavers, teachers,
or persons in flight. In a number of cases Mr. Dobson is able to provide information on the man or woman's spouse, children,
local origins, landholding, and, of course, the source of the information. While there is no certainty that each of the persons
identified in Scots-Irish Links or their descendants ultimately emigrated to America, undoubtedly many did or possessed kinsmen
The Scotch-Irish in America by Henry Jones Ford
Professor Ford's history of the Scotch-Irish,
though still considered by many to be the starting point for studying the history of the Ulster Plantation, has been out of
print for many years. The Scotch-Irish in America tells the story of the Ulster Plantation and of the influences that formed
the character of the Scotch-Irish people. Professor Ford commences with a detailed discussion of the events leading to the
Scottish migration to Ulster in the seventeenth century, followed by an examination of the causes of the secondary exodus
of these same "Scotch-Irish" to North America before the end of the century. Entire chapters are then devoted to the Scotch-Irish
settlement in New England, New York, the Jerseys, Pennsylvania, and along the colonial frontier. Special chapters take up
the role of the Scotch-Irish in the development of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S., some prominent Scotch-Irish preachers,
the Scotch-Irish in the American Revolution and the birth of the new nation, and the role of the Scotch-Irish in the spread
of popular education in America. Among the valuable resources at the back of the volume are a list of the "Scottish Undertakers"
who applied for land in Ulster in 1609, a list of sources consulted in the preparation of the work, and a subject/name index
with references to many early Scotch-Irish luminaries.
Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia, Extracted from the Original Court Records of Augusta
County, 1745-1800, 3 Volumes by Lyman Chalkley
Referencing 50,000 individuals, this monumental work consists of court
records pertaining to the Scotch-Irish pioneers who first breached the mountain barrier sealing off the Atlantic seaboard
from the country west of the Blue Ridge. In 1745, when Augusta County, Virginia was erected, its domain extended from the
Alleghenies to the Mississippi River, and from the northern part of Tennessee to the Great Lakes. So, this stands as the supreme
source of genealogical information for hundreds of thousands who trace their ancestry to Augusta County, and the Great Valley
The Scotch-Irish of Colonial Pennsylvania by Wayland F. Dunaway
The best history of the Scotch-Irish
of colonial Pennsylvania ever written, Dunaway's classic is indispensable to the genealogist. It outlines the circumstances
behind the settlement of Lowland Scots in Ulster, their life in that Province for two or three generations, and the reasons
for their emigration to America. This volume further traces the important migratory movements of the Scotch-Irish from Northern
Ireland to Pennsylvania, and from Pennsylvania down the foothills of the Appalachians through the Great Valley of Virginia
to the Carolinas and Georgia.
Pennsylvania Genealogies, Chiefly Scotch-Irish and German 2nd edition by William Henry Egle
collection of Pennsylvania genealogies is concerned primarily with families which, for the most part, settled in the extreme
regions of colonial Chester County, an area for which source material is notoriously scarce. Fully two-thirds of the families
included are of Scotch-Irish ancestry, and most, though not all, are brought down to the late nineteenth century. More than
3,000 names are found in the index.
Vital Records of Londonderry, New Hampshire, 1719-1910 by Daniel Gage Annis
In April 1719, a
small band of Scotch-Irish settlers under the guiding spirit of Rev. James MacGregor founded the town of Londonderry in New
Hampshire, which was destined to be an early Presbyterian stronghold in America. The keeping of vital records in Londonderry
commenced almost at once. Years later, when the town voted to fund the printing of these vital records for the period from
1719 to 1910, there were approximately 25,000 records of births, marriages, marriage intentions and deaths. Compiled by the
former town clerk and tax collector, Daniel Annis, the records are given here in alphabetical order under those four main
headings. Not all persons in these records are Scotch-Irish or of Scotch-Irish descent, but the historically significant Scotch-Irish
element is traceable through all the nearly 200 years of records.
Scotch-Irish Migration to South Carolina, 1772: Rev. William Martin and His Five Shiploads of Settlers
by Jean Stephenson
This book began as Jean Stephenson's effort to validate the family tradition that her great-great-grandparents
emigrated from Belfast to South Carolina under the leadership of Covenanter Presbyterian minister William Martin in 1772.
The author was not only able to authenticate the crux of the story, but, in the process, to place nearly 500 Scotch-Irish
families in South Carolina on the eve of the Revolutionary War. The author references records of the South Carolina Council
Journal and tax lists, passenger lists, church histories, and other sources housed at the South Carolina Department of Archives
