"The Original Scots Colonists of Early America" 1612 - 1783
"The Scottish participation in the settlement of America dates from the early seventeenth century, and from that time until
the American Revolution probably around 150,000 Scots emigrated to the New World. During the seventeenth century many Scots
settled within the English, Dutch and French colonies, while others attempted to establish independent Scots colonies in Nova
Scotia, New Jersey, South Carolina and at Darien (Note: Darien is the Scots' name for Panama.--GB). After the political
union of Scotland and England in 1707 the Scots had unrestricted access to the English plantations in America. Emigration
expanded slowly but steadily until 1763 when a combination of factors in Scotland and America stimulated emigration, especially
from the Highlands. Although Scots could be found throughout the American colonies from Barbados to Rupert's Land, areas such
as Georgia, the Carolinas, upper New York, Nova Scotia and Jamaica had the greatest concentration of Scottish immigrants.
This then was the general pattern of Scottish immigration and settlement in colonial America."
