Note; Kerr/Carr, Scott/Scot, Graham and Elliott/Ellot are Border Scot names, so it is likely that the Antrim Ulster Scottish, is derived from, border pacification, the Scots being banish from the borderlands to make way for an Middle Shires.

Though both groups, the Argyll Gaelic; The “Mac” and Campbell, and the Ulster Scot, likely of the borders seem in Ulster to share Antrim/Down, which would be expected to speak Gaelic. These are the people of the NC Argyll Colony, in which one group was Scottish speaking and the other group Gaelic. Guess these groups got along with each other, but both groups may had conflict with the English. The above localities of Ulster and Gaelic Scots, shows I have a lot of learning to do in order to puzzle it out.
