Misc. Notes
Ott’s database says [in original formatting], “Emigrated 1718 From Londonderry, Northern Ireland, diverted to Brunswick Maine and warned out of Boston in 1722”. Ott lists the parents of this David Young as John Young (b. 1623, Isle of Bert, near Londonderry, Ireland; immigrated Aug 1718 [aged 95] to Boston; d. 30 Jun 1730 [aged 107], Worcester, Massachusetts; bur. Old Burying Ground, Worcester, Massachusetts) and Janet Crawford (b. 1625). See under John Young for further details.

Rupp says that David accompanied his father John on their immigration to Boston, arriving November 1718; she does not mention any diversion to Maine. David is said to have been a physician, like his father.974

James McConnel notes that some of the 1718 immigrants “were attracted by the cheap land being offered by the Pejepscot Proprietors (a company of Boston and New Hampshire merchants) and settled near the mouth of the Androscoggin. The remaining Bann migrants were offered a township at Casco Bay and some sailed on the Robert to examine the site.” ( Perhaps that event is blended, correctly or incorrectly, into Ott’s account above?
