Scottish Highlanders on the Eve of the Great Migration, 1725-1775: The People of the Grampian Highlands
Author: David Dobson
Paperback, 123 pages
While the present volume is not a comprehensive directory of all of the Grampian Highlanders, it does pull together references on 1,500 18th-century inhabitants from that region. In all cases, Mr. Dobson gives each Highlander’s name, a locality within the Northern Isles (place of birth, residence, employment, etc.), a date, and the source. In some cases, we also learn the identities of relatives, the individual’s employment, vessel traveled on, and so forth.
