Dorothy,

The ship "Earl of Donegal" sailed from Belfast according to the book
"Ulster Emigration to Colonial America 1718-1775". On page 115 in the
footnotes it includes that ship in a list of ships that left Belfast
with emigrants.

There is no passenger list available, only the list of passengers that
petitioned for land after it docked in Charleston which was published in
Janie Reville's book "A Compilation of the Original Protestant
Immigrants to South Carolina".
