James and his family left Scotland about 1737 and settled in Northern Ireland, probably in Tyrone County. As early as the year 1765, James Brisbin, a native of Scotland, came to what is now Northumberland, then Saratoga, New York, and settled about one and a half miles westerly of Fort Miller,towards Bacon Hill. His first wife died in Scotland, and his two sons were born there, William and Samuel, about the same time settled in what is now Wilton, in the Laing neighborhood.
