As the Graemes, or Grahams, Armstrongs, Elliots, Scots, Crosiers, Beattie, Nixons,
Irwins, Littles, Fosters, Murrays and Byers etc were
transplanted/transported to Roscommon in 1606 by Chichester, would their names not have
been documented somewhere?
The Bishop of Carlisle, was one of those appointed to supervise all the arrangements
connected with the transference of the borderers from their
native land. Kinmont Willie was in Carlisle Castle so the Bishop of Carlisle was probably
well aware of him...were his kin among those
transplanted/transported to Roscommon in 1606??
We know after the great Plantation of the six escheated counties in 1610 they gradually
drifted up into Ulster Fermanagh etc but has anyone looked to
see if names of these Roscommon transportees etc were recorded??

I think there should be recordings , perhaps in Kew amongst Parliamentary
Also might be recorded in Carlisle Parish Chest.
As an interested party [Cros(Z)ier I'll see what I can find.
Earliest record of CROZIER I Have is a record of a John Ceozier being
granted lands in Antrim. John had two sone James and John. James moved to Co
Down and John to Fermanagh. The first mention of John in Fermanagh is with
Hume in his muster rolls.
With the three of us digging we might find the bones.
Happy New Year!!
Hope 2014 brings success to everyone
