WELCOME TO THE MILLIONS OF OUR AMERICAN COUSINS

 The Scots began emigrating to the New World in the early 1600's, This picked up during the British Civil War, with many Scots from both sides being transported to the American Colonies in the mid-1600's. Then, the Jacobite rebellions (1715 and 1745), and the Highland Clearances which came somewhat later, resulted in further numbers of transported Scots.

Large numbers of Scottish emigrants who had gone to Northern Ireland as colonists of the Ulster plantations in the first half of the 16th century also emigrated to America in the early 1700's. These people, referred to as the "Scotch-Irish" were by far the most numerous group of Scottish Colonists to come to America. Between 1715 and 1776 some 250,000 of them arrived, mainly in the Chesapeake Bay region, and settled all along the east coast, particularly in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, North and South Carolina and later in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and beyond.

A second wave of Scottish immigration came during the late 1800's and most of these Scots settled in the northeastern U.S. in the larger industrial cities.

There are now many millions of USA citizens with their roots in Scotland, and we welcome the opportunity to further the ties between them, and Scots throughout the world and at home in Bonnie Scotland.
