My direct paternal ancestor, John Hamilton (Pepper line), was a Scottish prisoner of war and was deported under the rule of Oliver Cromwell to the New World, specifically Charlestown, Massachusetts in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1650-1651. He arrived on the ship Unity with 149 other Scottish prisoners!
