    Ulster Scotts Question

    I have Scotts Irish Ancestry and I was reading about the Ulster Scotts.
    My ancestors surname was Hicks. I read Hicks has it's origins amongst Anglo Saxons in England.

    So I am trying to figure out if I am actually English or Scottish.
    I read most Ulster Scotts are not even ethnic Irish. So anyone know about the
    likely hood of my ancestry?

    This has been kind of bothering me for a while.

    Thanks.

    Ulster people are of norse ancestry, it was common for my ancestors to take Irish women, but I dont know if this was the case there.

    Ulster Scots or Scots Irish are of Lowland Scottish and English origin, so the English name wouldn't be a surprise.

    The Ulster Scots come from a variety of areas some of them are lowland Scots some are from the midland area or the are of the Hebrides Islands. Alot of them did marry with Irish women when they came over or with English lowlanders. There were some considerable Norse influences in the area though so alot of Ulster Scots have Norwegian and Danish ancestry.

    Your Ulster-Scots side is probably mixed English and Lowland Scots with a lesser amount of Highland Scots ancestry as well.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    There were Vikings all over Ireland, what does this have to do anything? particularly the Ulster Scots who were from later Protestant Scottish and English ancestry?

    You should also look into the Border Reiver culture. If you want to read up on it, which you really should, the best book is The Scotch Irish: A Social History by James Leyburn.

    For the Europeans Scotch-Irish is what we call Ulster Scots.

    Nobody in the UK uses the term Scotch-Irish, that is a highly American phrase, Scots-Irish is used alright, along with (and mainly) Uslter Scots.
