: I am a descendent of Patrick Shirley. My records say he was of Scotch-Irish descent and was born in Ulster, Ireland around 1720. This is as far back as my records go. Has anyone else found a link to Ulster, Ireland?

I am a descendent of a James Shirley who settled in Londonderry NH in 1742 with several grown sons. James and his family came from Ireland but were probably Scotch Irish. The history of Goffstown NH delineates all these names but I can't remember if one is Patrick. I just found a New Hampshire publication which I will be purchasing which lists Londonderry residents of this time period. Maybe we will find out!
