I was checking on the ship Hopewell - just to make sure the grey cells were
working - when I came across that I did have the names of the 5 ships for
Rev Martin:

"Surname Summary of those who came with the Rev Martin
These are the surnames which came with the Rev Martin as well as the ships
that they arrived on.
Lord Dunluce
PA Farmer
Free Mason
James and Mary "

I was told in 2007, that a lady in the US has done a passenger list for
these ships and there were a number of Boyd's on it. So I am not sure if
that means just Robert and William Boyd and their families or MORE BOYD

Perhaps someone on this list know of this passenger list.

What is now needed is now to find out where these ships sailed from and the
locations of the various Reformed Presbyterain Churches in County Antrim and
Ireland. (I am on the Down list, and a lady there has been taking about
people form Down going to Beaver Co., PA) Both Antrim and Down had quite a
lot of Boyd families.

Good hunting while I am away.

I believe that William came to America on the Ship Hopewell, arriving
in Charleston, SC on December 22 or 23, 1772. This was part of the
Rev Martin migration. It also appears to me that two of the four
children were born after arriving in America. Alexander, the son of
Robert Boyd and Mary Peoples and William's nephew, came to American in
1790 and later married his first cousin, Martha. Alex and Martha are
my ancestors.

Capt. Robert Boyd was the son of Alexander Boyd (William's son) and
Elizabeth Allen.
