They were protestant Presbyterian, Lowland Scots. The Scot-Irish were not Irish and were not Catholics. The term Scot-Irish is strictly an American nomenclature. In England and Ireland the same people are called Ulster Scots, which is much less confusing. For the entire piece, go to: http:/…/www.greencastlemuseum.org/Local_History/scotch-irish.htm For something a little more in depth, go to: http://www.barlowgenealogy.com/Resources/scots-irish.html The term was used since Queen Elizabeth 1 but fell out of use for many years, Scots Irish arose again simply because when Catholic Irish started coming into the US during the 1900's the old fashioned term was bought back to make a distinction between the earlier Protestant Irish settlers who came to the US from Ireland mostly between 1717 and `1776, and the refugees from the famine a hundred years later. The original settlers were from lowland Scotland did not speak Gaelic like their highland neighbours and in the 17 century Scottish and English landowners started to move them onto Catholic Irish lands as they spoke English and were not Catholic. Many went as their land had been overworked and was not as fertile as the Irish lands offered. They would not swear allegiance to the protestant Church of England and were seen as dissenters. This meant that they were not allowed to marry, bear arms or serve in the military. After 150 yrs of working the land of Ireland and being harshly treated by the rich landowners through methods such as rack renting they saw themselves as Irishmen but looked with hope towards the US as a land of freedom and opportunity. Most in Ireland use the term Ulstermen (MORE)
The 'Scots' can refer to various things through Scottish history. Originally what is now Scotland was occupied by the Picts, a Northern Celtic people, similar to the Brythonic Celts (Britons) in what is now England & Wales. The Roman empire never managed to subdue the Picts so they became cultur…ally very different from the southern Romanized-Celts. In the 6th Century another group of Celts, the Gaels, who had settled in Ireland spread across the Hebrides to western Scotland creating the Kingdom of DÃ¡l Riata. The tribes where known as 'Scotti' which meant raiders. Ireland was known in Latin as Hibernia or Scotia Major and Scotland was known as Caledonia or Scotia Minor. At this point in time Scot or Scotti simply referred to all of those who where ethnically Celtic-Gaels within Scotland, Ireland and Mann. Although they would never have refered to themselves as Scots. A fusion of DÃ¡l Riata and the Pictish Kingdoms in 843AD created the Kingdom of Alba (Scotland) but still the term Scots would refer to both Scots & Irish. The Pictish culture was lost and all within Alba spoke Gaelic. It wasn't until the 16th Century that Scotia was confined to refering to Scotland at this point Scots would refer only to those living in Scotland who would be of Gaelic, Pictish & Brythonic (Celtic) decent. It's also interesting to note that the language 'Scots' came from a different origin. In the 7th - 13th centuries the Germanic and Celtic languages of lowland Scotland evolved between the Strathclyde (Brythonic) and Lothian (Angle). Similar to Old English due to it's Angle influence. This Language became known as Scots but formally Gaelic of the Scottish Highlands was known as Scots. So in the present day The Scots are the distinct people of the country of Scotland upon the Island of Great Britain. (MORE)

Dubh means black in the language of the Scots and Irish. There was supposedly a King of Scotland - Kenneth Dubh that some say was of dark complexion. Others say there were many warriors from North Africa that were in Scotland that were in alliance with the highlanders ( Moors or Blackamoor) The stor…y of Othello could be included in this.. We may never know if Dubh meant dark as in North African or came from another source. For example the surname Black comes from Blacksmith as does the the surname Smith.. In the United States there is a tendency of people with dark complexions from either Latin America or African decent to claim they are Black Scots or Black Irish in order to explain their complexion and deny their true heritage. If Kenneth Dubh is of African decent then it is ironic that these Americans are also claiming African decent.. DNA studies in Ireland show links between Spain and France (Basques and Bretons)."The Longue Duree of Genetic Ancestry: Multiple Genetic Marker Systems and Celtic Origins on the Atlantic Facade of Europe, Oct 2004". A Harvard University Study of the Irish (10,000 males) also showed they were almost universally pale skinned where their skin was unexposed to the elements. (MORE)

Scots-highlanders are the present, or formerly, Gaelic speaking inhabitants. Scots-Irish are descendants of a colonization of northern Ireland that took place in the 1600s. Called "Ulster Scots" outside of the USA. They are largely descended from Lowlanders rather than Highlanders.
There isn't a King of the Scots. Following the union of the Crowns on the death of Elizabeth the First (of England), James the 6th of Scotland became the King of England. So, in effect, he became James the First of England and 6th of Scotland. He was the chap who was responsible for commisioning the… King James Version of the Holy Bible. Consequently, Scotland and England have had a shared monarchy ever since. So, the Current monarch is Queen Elizabeth the 2nd of England and 1st of Scotland (Scotland has never had a prior Queen Elizabeth as explained above!). (MORE)

They probably would have done & some were outraged that King James VI did nothing to avenge his mother's death. But James was keen to maintain good relation with Queen Elizabeth I (which possibly helped to his succeeding her following her death in 1603).. Following Mary's execution, Elizabeth sent …James a letter of apology claiming she didn't mean for the signed death warrant to be delivered. This seems to have placated James.. Hope this helps.

The original inhabitants of Scotland were the Picts whose origins are uncertain. Scotland is named after the Scotti tribe who emigrated from Ireland to southwest Scotland.
This is Roman term for a member of the peoples of northern Scotland, possibly meaning 'painted' (tattooed). Of pre-Celtic origin, and speaking a Celtic language which died out in about the 10th century, the Picts are thought to have inhabited much of England before the arrival of the Celtic Britons.… They were united with the Celtic Scots under the rule of Kenneth MacAlpin in 844. Their greatest monument is a series of carved stones, whose symbols remain undeciphered. (MORE)
The Picts are the original inhabitants of what became Scotland. The Romans called them the 'Caledonia' or 'Painted Ones'. The Scots were a Celtic tribe from what is now Northern Ireland, the 'Scotti'. The Scotti moved to the Argyle region of Scotland and slowly 'bred out' the Picts. The country even…tually became known as Scotland. (MORE)
Originally, in the nineteenth century, it was because of the highland clearances in which landowners with that rented out to farmers (crofters in Scots) and clan chiefs that officially owned the land their clans lived on evicted the tenants and clansmen from their farmhouses (crofts) and abodes so t…hey could rear sheep as they were more profitable - although before that, Scotland had it's own colony in north America known as Nova Scotia (and had planned to make one in Panama, which had failed) which was treated as an equal part of Scotland (same way France treated her colonies and now overseas territories) and a part of Scotland within the United Kingdom after the union of parliaments. In more modern days, it's more likely to be the poor state of living in most of Scotland because of our presence in the united kingdom. (Overall, Scotland doesn't loses a small amount of money to westminster, and has to give away it's possible exports such as Electricity, Fruit, and most crucially Oil - Scotland is a major oil-producing nation and doesn't receive a penny for it) (MORE)

Many of the men who fought in the war were Scot/Irish. They often were signed up as they came off the ships into the port. Many states also had large Scot/Irish populations that came in the 1700's and in the early 1800's. I have seen the number as high as 80% of the troops were Scot/Irish.

There are many Boyd's in Ulster. Most of whom originated in Scotland. There are no specifically Ulster-Scots names as such but if the name is in Ireland and the family can be traced back further to Scotland then those people are likely to be Ulster-Scots.

Her mother, Marie de Guise ( Mary of Guise) was French. she ( mother) died early in her reign, and for some odd reason Mary Stuart was not permitted to attend her mother"s funeral.

Mary Queen of Scots(Mary Stewart and later Stuart) became queen when she was merely 6 days old at the passing of her father.
