« Joshua Dunbar (1670 - 1736) | Main | Scots Prisoners Deported to New England »

July 31, 2007


Jo Culberson

I visited Saugus Ironworks (in search of one of my immigrant ancestors) and purchased a Nat'l Park Service booklet "The Scots at Hammersmith." Our Robert is included in the biographies: "Dunbar, Robert (b. 1634)--He was one of the Scots sent to the company's local commissioners, being in the service of Joshua Foote at Braintree. He was living at Hingham at the time of his son's birth in 1657."

Wendy - Thanks for your comment. Do you have any more information about Robert and his connection to Morayshire? Bill

Robert's father is most definitely NOT Ninian. Ninian did have a son named Robert, who was a serving member of Parliament when Robert of Hingham was raising babies in Massachusetts. Can't be in two places at the same time so Robert of Hingham can't possibly be Ninian's son.

First Webmaster - Thanks for the clarification. As I wrote there was no proof of Ninian and now you have provided some counter proof. Bill
