They received land as an incentive to settle in the Up Country of South Carolina. The list includes the Ship in which they came, the amount of land they each received and in most instances the location of the land.

  1. "Passenger and immigration lists index" by P.Wm.Filby and Mary k Meyer , 3 vols.and a yearly suppliment since1982
  2. "The Complete Book of Emigrants in Bondage"by Peter Wilson Coldham
  3. "Emigrants from England 1773-1776"by Gerald Fothergill
  4. "Some Emigrants to Va." By W.G.Standard,
    -lots of 1600s names,not lists,notindexed
  5. "Immigrants to America Appearing in English records" by F.Smith and D.Gardner,
    - I find that most all early settlements were known as "ENGLISH' when in fact
    there were Scots and Irish in most of the groups.Point being ,we can't skip over some thing just because it is titled "English" ,may miss lots of Scots and Irish if we do.
  6. "Passenger Lists Index" by Filby
    - It is truly an index, which referrs you to hundreds,maybe thousands,of. individual sources.You can get the name,age,general destination and year ,from the index.
    - This publication has referenced, by surname, a large number of immigrants to North America (mostly the U.S...but some Canadian immigrations are in there).
    - The publication might give an entry similar to the following example:
      O'Leary, Bridget  Philadelphia, 1886 [30] p 10
      O'Leary would be the surname, Bridget the first name, Philly, the port, 1886 the
      year of entry, p10 is the page, and [30] is a particular publication.  You
      go to the front of the book and find out what publication [30] is...and then
      scoot over the the ILL (Inter Library Loan) desk and order it (I always assume the library does
      not have the book).  Then, go home, turn on your computer, and go to the
      NARA site and order the forms you need for the ship list.  If your library
      isn't too should get the book and the form about the same time.
      Check through the book, see if the fellow(s) are yours, then order up the
      manifest through NARA.
The first two can be found in the larger libraries.The rest I found at the FHC,on the shelf
