Tracing medieval Scots, Welsh and Irish emigrants in England

Amanda Epperson's Scottish Emigration Blog has a good piece on the England's Immigrants 1330-1550 database at www.englandsimmigrants.com, noting that it is possible to identify some 3389 Scottish emigrants who appeared in England in that period, as mentioned within various medieval documents. The full post is available at http://scottishemigration.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/scots-in-medieval-england.html.

I carried out a similar search on Irish emigrants who turned up in England, and found some 2018 entries, whilst for Wales, 60 folk are noted.
