Uncle Jacques: in the context of 1650, what does "loyalist Scot" imply? I'm unfamiliar with the term. King, or parliament? And i would guess if he was Lowland Scot, he probably didnt speak Gaelic. That's not an inflexible rule, but in 1650 Gaelic(which tended to be called Irish in Scotland in those days, which is confusing) was mainly a northern and western activity.
