What I found from 10,900 websites about 'The Pearl' was the following:
There were no passenger lists during that time frame, but you can be
reassured that those Scottish passengers were being shipped to the 'new
world' because they were rocking the boat there in Scotland politically. By
looking over these urls, you can view what Scottish surnames have already
been researched and you can view what has already been found. New York state
or should I have said, the colony of NY would be where most of those got off
The "Pearl", learned this from just looking over the first few websites.
and then, this was one of those websites to look over:
