  • Notes 
    • According to Ned Landsman (1985), New Jersey was also a popular destination for Scots, but not predominantly Highland Scots. What Landsman's title (Scotland and Its First American Colony) downplays is that large numbers of Scots were transported to South Carolina earlier in the 1600s and failed to create a successful colony there. Additionally, communities of Scots-Irish settled on the coast of Maryland as early as 1649, and in Darien, Georgia, another less-known Highlander colony briefly flourished from 1735 to 1748. For information on the Darien settlement see Anthony Parker's Scottish Highlanders in Colonial Georgia (1997).

      William Foote records an earlier 1729 settlement in his 1846 Sketches of North Carolina. Several subsequent works on the Highland Scots and the Scots-Irish repeat his claims. Meyer suggests that, having visited the Highlander settlements, Foote perhaps recorded surviving oral tradition about the early settlements (1961:177), or perhaps Foote had access to documents that are now lost to us.
      Argyll, archaically Argyle (Earra-Ghàidheal, is a region of western Scotland corresponding with most of the part of ancient Dál Riata that was located on the island of Great Britain, and in a historical context can be used to mean the entire western coast between the Mull of Kintyre and Cape Wrath. Argyll was also a medieval Bishopric with its cathedral at Lismore, as well as an early modern Earldom and Duchy, the Duchy of Argyll. (Source: Wikepedia)

      1747. North Carolina Scottish Immigration:
      A new wave of Highlanders begins arriving in North Carolina after the
      failed revolt in Scotland in 1746. Forced from their Scottish
      homelands, these immigrants settle mainly in the Cape Fear Valley.
      1773. Approximately 4,000 Highland Scots arrive to settle along the
      Cape Fear River, bringing the total Scottish population in the colony
      to 20,000.
