All 272 Names of the Scots on the “John and Sara” are listed!

This morning I have completed the list for the ship “John and Sara.” There are 272 counted. That does include the three completely blank slots which were apparently undecipherable when the transcriptions were made.

These are the Scottish prisoners who were deported as “servants” to “Charles Towne” in New England in November 1651.

Please help me by looking over the list and reporting any errors you may see. If you recognize an ancestor and you want the correct spelling of the family surname shown please let me know.

    Hi Teresa, I was asked to do a bio on David Sterling for your blog on the facebook page. Here is what I have:
    David Sterling was born in Hertfordshire, England in 1612/22 to James Stirling/Sterling from Keir, Scotland. David was one of the 272 Scottish Prisoners of the English Civil War, (Battle of Worchester), sent by Oliver Cromwell’s forces aboard The John and Sarah to the American Colonies (Charlestown, Mass) in 1651/52.** According to {*The Genealogical and Family History of Wyoming and Lackawanna Valley – Volume 1., pg 348. by: Horace E. Hayden, Alfred Land, and John Woolf Jordan} David Sterling died in Charlestown, Mass., in 1691. His Bankell/Hertfordshire Arms are listed in J. Matthew’s American Armoury and Blue Book (1907) Pg. 71 -(in the back of the book). David’s Son, William Sterling, became a “freeman” in Massachusetts on May 11, 1681***
