The Ship Gildart


Story provided by Lu Hickey

Scots banished to America

During the 17th and 18th centuries history was in the making.. Countries all over the world were changing, upheaval and battles.. The modern : World History books miss the important factors that brought people to the new world...We are not Americans, we are Scots, Caledonians, Picts, Irish, German, Dutch and others came to the new world, either by choice or force...the latter more true than the former...

The new colonial plantations were a melting pot for many races and kindred.. Upon reaching the new world, they knew not the other's tongue so small colonies were formed by the people of the same kindred...Many Scots went to South Carolina. Many to the north as Virginia and Maryland...others were dispersed to Canada and Australia and Barbados...

The Scots of this story a choice few of 88 convicts of the Battle of Culloden....The Scots of this story came to America on the ship Gildart, which was just one of many ships that carried the families that were banished for some reason or other..

For history sake, let this tale be titled:  Prisoners of the 45..For other's sake if not for mine, I am going to list the passengers who came to America on the Gildart...
