For the most part, the majority of Scots as with the British in general who were drawn to Asia over much of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries were young, single men who went out to make money, hopefully as quickly as possible, and then return home with their gains. Some migrants to the East like James Taylor, however, did spend their lives in the tropics while remaining deeply and intimately connected to their homeland. This chapter examines these emotional and practical connections to home with a particular focus on remittances, photographs, health, death, and neighbourhood ties.
