While tradition and historical sources indicate a continuous link between the Chesapeake and Scotland from the early seventeenth century, the specific data that genealogists require in identifying Scottish ancestors is far from complete. Nevertheless, this new book by David Dobson attempts to bring together all available references to Scots in Virginia and Maryland from sources scattered throughout Great Britain and North America. To develop this information Mr. Dobson conducted research in archives and libraries in Scotland, England, Canada, and the United States. The result is an exhaustive list of several thousand Scots known to have been in the Chesapeake region between 1607 and 1830, including, where known, details of birth, marriage and death, occupation, age, date of emigration, place of settlement, and family relationships. Only those who have been positively identified as Scots or likely to have been born in Scotland are included in this invaluable work.
