The Original Scots Colonists of Early America, 1612-1783
Around 150,000 Scots emigrated to America before the War of Independence. Genealogists have found it difficult to research these settlers as records in the US from this period are sparse. However, David Dobson has gone back to Scotland and England and searched the archives there and found a lot of information on these people. The following records were used in this research: family and estate papers, testamentary and probate records, burgh muniments, sasine and deed registers, Sheriff’s Court records, Court of Session and High Court of Judiciary records, port books, customs registers, contemporary diaries and journals, contemporary newspapers and magazines, professional and university records, Privy Council and colonial records, records of Episcopalian and Presbyterian churches, monumental inscription lists, and the 1774-75 Register of Emigrants.
