In the tradition of his earlier volumes of Scots-Irish links for the period 1575 to 1725, Mr. Dobson has picked up the trails of Scots living in Ulster and of Irish living in Scotland during the following hundred years. The compiler has transcribed the identities of these individuals in a new series, Later Scots-Irish Links, 1725-1825. Unlike the previous century-and-a-half, the destination of most Scots emigrants during the 18th century was across the Atlantic and not to Ulster. The same period also witnessed the beginnings of a large-scale exodus from Ireland to the Americas. Nevertheless, there was some movement of peoples between Ireland and Scotland from 1725 to 1825, mostly students heading for universities in Glasgow or Edinburgh. Working from primary sources in Scotland, such as university records, court records, gravestone inscriptions, family and estate records, as well as various published sources, Mr. Dobson has amassed information in Part Two of this series on 1,200 persons not found in the original installment, roughly doubling the total number of Scots-Irish to date.
