"The Scotch Irish" 1902 by Charles Hanna.
"16 April, 1605, the date of the founding of the Plantation of Ulster, N. Ireland. Sir Thomas Boyd, Knight; James Hamilton, earl of Aberdeen; George Hamilton, Gent; and Sir George Hamilton, Knight, were the 'undertakers' forming the new Scotch settlement in Ireland from Scotia Major in Scotland".
