Researchers will discover the identities of many Huguenot emigres or their descendants in a groundbreaking new work from David Dobson. Working from baptismal registers, burgess rolls, tax lists, marriage registers, and other primary sources, Mr. Dobson has unearthed information concerning over 1,000 Scottish Huguenots or their descendants. For each individual, the compiler provides the name, a locale, a date, usually an occupation, and something about the person (e.g., “admitted as a burgess,” or “apprenticed to James Smart a merchant in Edinburgh,” or “married Beatrix Cowan in Canongate”). While this new book can scarcely claim to list every person of Huguenot descent who made Scotland his or her new home, it does refer to over 2,000 subjects and their family members or associates.
