[4qd-bannvalley] Making the research leap to Scotland

Hello, all:

For those subscribers whose Bann Valley ancestors' surnames suggest
earlier emigration from Scotland, particularly during the plantation
period, have any of you managed to make the (documented) research
leap back to Scotland?  I am well aware what a tall order this
entails ... for those of us whose Irish forebears were farmers and
such, the leap is probably well nigh impossible.

Is there any literature which addresses the origins of the 17th
century Scottish emigrants to either the Bann Valley or to county
Antrim? i.e., particular surnames from particular places; whether
certain groups, or clusters of surnames, came from particular
parishes in Scotland; etc.

I'm just beginning to consider this subject, so apologies if my
questions are more general than specific.

Thanks in advance,
