Opis: Our Folks and Your Folks - Porter Florence Collins

Excerpt from Our Folks and Your Folks: A Volume of Family History and Biographical Sketches; Including the Collins, Hardison, Merrill, Teague and Oak Families, and Extending Over a Period of Two Centuries

Much has been written of the Pilgrims of Plymouth and the Puritans of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, but the history of another class of colonists who also had a marked influence in the founding of the towns of New England, is not so well known to many readers of New England history.

These colonists could claim a remote kinship with the Pilgrims and Puritans, but were far enough removed to have moulded a new type of citizenship.

They were the Scotch Irish immigrants who settled in Londonderry, N. H., and who were the founders of Presbyterianism in New England. The name "Londonderry" was a combination of the ancient monastry of Derry and London, the capital of England.

Unlike the Pilgrims and the Puritans, although a God-fearing people, they did not come here because of a desire for religious liberty, but to improve their conditions in life.

The name of "Scotch Irish" was first given in the seventh century to pioneers from Ireland who had established themselves on the western coast of Scotland, then called Caledonia.

Scottish clans, the Picts from the highlands and the Saxons of the lowlands, united to drive them from their shores, but in vain.

For over six hundred years this struggle went on, and during this period the Picts were converted to the religion of their foes and then a graver peril threatened their liberties.
