    English settlers tended to be members of the church of Ireland (Anglicans) and Scottish settlers tended to be presbyterians.

    There were also quite a few French Huguenots that settled in Linen weaving areas.

    Its hard to guage intermarriage between different denominations and the levels of conversion.

    Anglicans tended to be the most affluent, I reckon most emmigrants to America would be presbytarians, which may explain the religiousity of the US south.

    Because they settled there, and therefore Ulster people will have partially norse ancestry, no?

    Yes it was largely the Presbyterians as they also had laws restricting their religious practices like not having marriages recognized if done by Presbyterian ministers.

    When they came to the colonies they streamed in to Philadelphia and went west until they hit the Appalachians and turned south.

    Thanks

    Wow thanks

    I did not expect so many answers so fast you people rock. So more than likely than not, I have some English ancestry. Looks like I will have to add another flag to my collection in honor of my heritage.

    Well be sure to tell them they're wrong. We aren't an alcoholic drink.

    Scotch Irish is an American term, Ulster Scot is much better, and much more likely to be used by an Ulster Scot. I too, have Ulster Scot ancestry
