When I was a kid, the story in our family re: our Irish ancestors was that they fled Ireland and came to America to escape persecution. A few years ago I started doing some genealogical research and found that, while they did indeed flee Ireland, it wasn't exactly to escape persecution. It seems that they were actually English, living in Ireland because they'd been given a big piece of it as a reward for their efforts in supporting William of Orange. They left Ireland when the Irish won the right to hold seats in Parliament. I guess they felt that was going a little too far... :)
