b. Montreal, Quebec

THESE FOLKS DIDN'T SEEM TO LIKE STAYING IN ONE PLACE FOR ANY GREAT LENGTH OF TIME, PERHAPS BY BEING BRUSHMAKERS AND BEING ON THE TRAMP. THERE IS A DEFINITE CHILL IN THE AIR ON THIS TRAIL BUT I'M NOW IN SOUTHAMPTON, HAMPSHIRE IN THE LATE 1700'S EARLY 1800'S.

ALAS, WHAT I GREW UP BELIEVING TO BE MY AYRSHIRE LINE OF SCOTS HAVE NOW CROSSED THE WATER INTO THE BEAUTIFUL ISLE OF IRELAND.  THESE "IRISHMEN" ? ARE GOING TO MAKE IT DIFFICULT FOR ME, PERHAPS WITH A BIT O' THE "LUCK OF THE IRISH" I CAN GO FURTHER!
