John, I am looking for the family in Scotland of John Key/Keay who was taken prisoner at the Battle of Dunbar in 1650 by the army of Oliver Cromwell and transported to Boston, Mass in the ship Unity for endentured service at the Saugus Iron Works. The Unity and the prisoners of war from Scotland arrived in Boston in April 1651. His troubles weren't over as he was later kidnapped by Indians and turned over to the French in Quebec.
