Format: Paperback
There is no doubt that Lucille H. Campey is an authority on Scottish immigration.

She provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the nature of Scottish settlement patterns in Upper Canada. Campey examines major settlements and discusses in detail the peoples' origins, circumstances for arrival and the consequences of their presence in Ontario.

Highlanders settlers arrived in Upper Canada following the American Revolution in 1784. They were "fiercely loyal to the British Crown" and their presence would act as a defensive measure against any Yankee invasion. They established residence in Glengarry, Perth and Lanark and eventually moved as the frontier expanded across western Upper Canada. Eventually, word of the favourable conditions spread, and before long fellow Scots poured into the region.

These early pioneers had the finances to settle in Upper Canada unlike those who followed in the latter years who required government assistance. Contrary to popular belief most Scots "arrived safely and in good health". However, emigration societies were formed to assist the less fortunate by channelling funds and organizing departures. After 1815 the government no longer offered free passage as an incentive to emigrate. Scottish larids who originally perceived immigration as a threat soon realized that it was a means of "alleviating [tenants'] distress" and provided assistance during the infamous Highland Clearances. Those who did arrive during this period were destitute with little means to travel beyond the port. These farmers, labourers and weavers hailed from Invernesshire, Lanarkshire, Argyll and the Hebrides sailed on timber ships that were "generally of the highest quality".

Scottish Pioneers of Upper Canada Jan. 8 2008
By Susan K. Woutersz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book for genealogy purposes. It was easy reading and is an excellent source of understanding the Scottish immigration to Canada (including areas in Scotland settling in areas in Canada). It includes why immigration began, purchasing tickets, life aboard the ships and how life was for the immigrants. It has pointed me in directions of where to look for ancestors. Even if I did not have Scottish ancestors, I would of enjoyed this book for the historical knowledge.
Nicely done book Sept. 25 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent, well researched book with very good maps and drawings.. My ancestor's parents were there by 1788 when he was born in one of the early settlements, so the rest of the book doesn't have much to do with me, but that isn't the author's fault.
