The Merseyside Scots: A Study of an Expatriate Community

by Alasdair Munro & Duncan Sim
£9.75   paperback  Liver Press (2001)

The Merseyside Scots: A Study of an Expatriate Community by Alasdair Munro & Duncan Sim Merseyside has always attracted Irish, Welsh & Scottish immigrants. The Irish were predominantly Catholic and, in the 19th century, were concentrated in one particular area of Liverpool. The Welsh tended to attend Welsh language churches and to be concentrated in certain professions such as teaching, building and retailing. Scots, on the other hand, lived throughout the city and were found in most trades and professions and attended a wider range of churches.
The authors share the same Scottish grandparents who settled on Merseyside. This interest has led them to research resulting in this book which sets out to show how much this area owes to its Scottish community.
