Sir David Glenny or Glennie of Scotland

Does anyone know the reason Sir David Glenny moved from Scotland to Ireland?
I have read that during the 1600's Irish chieftains in N. Ireland that opposed the English fled from their land. Then King James I of England gave their land to English and Scottish Protestants. I have also read that James Hamilton brought 10,000 Scots to County Down in return for a land title. Could this be the motive for his move to N. Ireland? If so why then did thefamily relocate to Mass just a hundred years later? Also, for general knowledge, I have listed a Boy Glenny, son of Sir David and father to William (b.1703) and Isaac (b.1697)
