Ship's Passenger Lists
- Good Morning!
It is important to remember that these lists are not complete. I've not found a site online at this point that has a complete list. It is possible that we will never know ALL of the Scottish prisoners that came to MA in 1651 and 1652. If anyone knows of a better site, please let me know. Thanks!
There does seem to be some confusion about what ship came first and after which battle. One authoritative site, says, that the Unity brought the prisoners from after the Battle of Dunbar, and the John &Sara (Sarah) brought prisoners after the Battle of Worcester. I am still keeping an open mind.
