Subject: Andrew Wood - Ulster Plantation - 1609 [LONG]
Date: Sun, 10 Oct 1999 13:12:05 -0600

I am trying to identify the descendants of the Andrew Wood who received
land under the Ulster Plantation scheme in 1609. Andrew emigrated from
Aryshire, Scotland. His date of application was 20 July 1609. His
surety was a John Wood of Geilston, Scotland.

Andrew, with presumably his siblings or children (John, William and
James) appears on the The Muster Roll of the County of Donegal, circa
1630, in the Barony de Rapho, then administered by Ludovic Stuart, of
the famous family of Stewart, who was then the Lord Duke of Lennox.
The following is a transcript of the muster list, that appears to have
categorized individuals in groups indicating their proficiency with a
particular weapon. Note that I have made no attempt to correct
spelling, capitalization or other grammatical errors.

Finally, I should point out that the dscendants of Andrew Wood appear
to have frequently (over a number of subsequent generations)married
members of the Wallace, McDowell and Campbell families, both in Ireland
and after their (circa 1720) emigration to the Americas (PA and VA).
Further, that I have no additional information on any of the surnames
listed above. Thanks for any assitance in helping me identify Andrew
Wood's descendants.
