Throughout the Bristish Islands in the early 1700's, the Scots, as well as the Presbyterians were weary and discouraged by the restrictions placed on them by the Crown and the Church of England. They began searching for a new and better land where they could enjoy their religious freedoms without interference from the government. In 1727, the patriarch, James Carruth, of Ballymartin Parish, County Antrim, Ireland, died. His sons Walter and Adam sailed to America on the ship, "Diligence" of Glasgow, in January of 1729. When they first arrived in the new country, the earlier colonists refered to them as Irish, which they strongly resented, insisting rather that they were Scots. Later, they were considered Scottish-Irish or Scotch-Irish.
