Loyd, Some sources say the undermentioned people on the list settled in "New England".However, another source said that they signed the "Boyd" petition for settlers to go to America, so I am unsure if they actually did go and settle there.
Home Towns Of Ulster Families, 1691-1718 **from appendix VI of Scots Irish Pioneers in Ulster and America(book by Charles Hanna) "Since the ministers of dissenting congregations had little or no legal standing during the earliest years of the emigration to New England
.......their records of births, marriages and death do not appear to have been preserved, except in isolated cases.....
But the records of presbytery and synod were kept with great care, and the latter have been printed to the year 1820.
They give the name of the ruling elder in each congregation for the year of the general synod, and often the names of commissioners sent to the synod to represent local interests. Names of witnesses in cases which came before the synod also help to establish the home towns of Presbyterian families. Names of Ulster towns are usually given here as they are spelled in the records."
R. E. means Ruling Elder C, stands for Commissioner W. stands for Witness P. means petitioner The names in this list from County Antrim are as follows.
