      The entries in the Dobson book, "Directory of Scots Banished to the
      American Plantations 1650-1775" are quite short, as the two examplars
      quoted so far indicate. In his introduction, Dobson states that the
      book can not be considered comprehensive, and in particular, the
      Cromwellian deportation records have not survived. It is apparent that
      the entries do not attempt to be full biographies, though in some
      cases, origins and occupations are noted. But, every little bit could
      be a help, and all entries note their source(s). Those sources could
      be a useful start-point for further elaboration.
