Plantation of Antrim

Does anyone have any information regarding the dates of Plantation of the Glenavy/Ballinderry area of Antrim by Scottish people? I would assume it happened in the early 18th Century. I have recently come across enclaves of my HOOD ancestors in Glenavy, Derriaghey and Blaris.

Thank you,

Re: Plantation of Antrim

See my post of May 1st 2015, 'Where do we come from?'. I think the plantation of that area was by English And Welsh people not Scots.

All the best,
