Scots in Ireland

By Ireland, you possibly mean Ulster?

This was English ethnic cleansing continuing from the organised influx of French Hugenots, which failed due to miltant Irish patriots removing them.
An earlier Scots Planting in Catholic Ireland failed for the same reasons.

Pardon, but when I think of Ireland, I do not think of Ulster. I think, of Ireland.

One generation of my own paternal line came to Antrim from Kirkconnel, and died there in 1688. His son, born in Londonderry 1677 moved directly from there at some point to Pennsylvania where he passed in 1722.

On that grounds, we were always told to be Orange. Yet, the facts do not support such an assumption. My guess is he went to Antrim as a paid fighter, on which side I do not know.

Tell me more, though, if you will, of this:

" ... the organised influx of French Hugenots"

What answer to that did you get when you researched Cromwell / Ireland / Border Reivers ?

That portion of it I have a fairly decent understanding of, for an America amateur.

Hugenots, however, I confess never having understood very well at all.

I made no mention of Huguenots
