>Hi folks
>Just had a look at the page Linda kindly pointed to . It seems a bit sloppy to me.
>The Montgomery and Hamilton settlements in Co Down and Antrim were in 1606, the first settlers were there in 1607 ie BEFORE the Ulster Plantation which was from 1610 - 1630. The Plantation was a quite separate event sponsored by the English Government and did not include Antrim and Down because they were already settled; indeed it was the apparent success of these two Scots settlers that convinced them to go ahead.
