Overview

The work at hand is the second volume in this series. It is the outgrowth of Mr. Dobson's researches in the archives and libraries of Scotland, England, and Denmark and, together with Volume I, it represents the first listing devoted to Scottish inhabitants of the West Indies for the aforementioned period. Arranged alphabetically by surname, many of the entries in this volume were culled from Scottish newspapers like the Glasgow Mercury and the Greenock Advertiser, in which notices would appear seeking to employ managers and servants. In all, the second volume identifies an additional 2,000 Scots not found in Volume I, who are identified by full name, island inhabited, date, and source of the information, and sometimes by occupation, parent(s) name(s), and education, and vessel upon which he/she arrived. Jamaica would appear to be the main port of disembarkation for the people described here; however, readers will also discover Scots who traveled to St. Vincent, Grenada, Dominica, Tobago, Trinidad, St. Lucia, Antigua, Cuba, St. Kitts, St. Croix, and other ports of call.
