Because the original passenger list for the ketch Unity, which transported about 150 Scottish prisoners of war captured at the Battle of Dunbar to the British Colonies in the New World, has never been discovered, the following list, updated as of 03 April 2019, is a compilation, of all of the suggested, but not necessarily proven, Dunbar prisoners of war sent to Massachusetts in 1650. The names below are compiled from the following three lists:
1. Dr. Andrew Millard’s list in, Lost Live, New Voices. (LLNV)
2. George S. Stewart’s list, 35 Scots at Lynn 1653,  Iron Works Inventory. (IWI)
3. George S. Stewart’s list Captured at Dunbar, (CD)

While some of the names below are found on “Dunbar” lists they are actually POW on the John and Sara Passenger List, hence they are POW from the Battle of Worcester. (J&S)
