Adam Averill, Methodist Minister, Scottish Origin, Scottish Plantation, west cork, West Cork Somervilles
Methodist Minister, Rev. Adam Averill, 1799, on possible Scottish Origin, of West Cork, Swanton family and reputed Scottish Plantation, Castlehaven/Skibbereen c 1690s, Andersons, Hamiltons.
It is interesting that the West Cork Somervilles, descend from a Rev. Somerville who fled to Ireland from persecution in Scotland c 1690 and may coincide if there was such a Plantation.
Re the names Hamilton may be Scottish or a corruption of an old Gaelic name.
The Swantons have a tradition of industry, hard work and dissent which some would say are Scottish virtues.
