    I'm going on the assumption that there wasnt as much Irish influence at this early time.
    Yes, it’s very possible. The first wave of settlers came in around 1607-1610 and the last large wave came around the late 1690s. Although they would have been there for almost 100 years, the Scottish and English settlers weren’t exactly mates with the local Irish. Political and Religious ideologies often kept them apart. Both the settlers and the Irish instigated several extremely violent incidents and massacres. One such massacre resulted in over 5,000 settlers losing their lives. So needless to say, save for the few Romeo and Juliet’s among them, they would have kept the marriages to themselves.

    Here's a site you might be interested in, I went ahead and put in the name myself (see picture above), but it could come in handy later on or you can continue your search there. It's probably out of date by a few years, but I've still found it to be accurate. Just search a surname and it'll show you where the name is most widely registered. http://worldnames.publicprofiler.org/Main.aspx

    Anyways, if you have further questions about the name, feel free to PM me, as we're getting off topic here.
    Well thank you.

    The timeframe would be quite right-- their descendants are DAR and culturally ultra-WASP.
