Compiled from sources in both Scotland and America, this new book by renowned Scottish genealogist David Dobson names some 3,000 Scots who settled in New England between 1623 and 1873. In a series of sketches ranging from two or three lines to a paragraph or more, Scots immigrants are identified by place of origin, occupation, date of arrival, place of settlement, and various other details, including their membership in organizations such as the Scots Charitable Society of Boston or their service in the cause of the beleaguered House of Stuart. For ease of use the sketches are arranged in alphabetical order, and each one is linked to at least one source record, with numerous sketches drawn directly from the records of the National Archives of Scotland.
Although we often associate Scots immigrants with the Carolinas or Canada, this new work gives cause for a fundamental shift in thinking, placing New England at the forefront of Scottish-American genealogical research.
