They arrived in Amber with just over 5000 men, 3000 women. Led there by Prince Gerard. He was good friend with Goodman Herrington. In time Harrington became the first Duke of Tranton.

They had been leading work crews into shadow following the tugs of the Shadow Trails laid down by the elders. When they first arrived they used nearly all their treasure from their home world to purchase an estate north of one day Garn. It was located near the trail head of three shadow-trails. Further they convinced Prince Gerard to walk them up each trail and locate worlds with no sentient life and the materials they would become famous for. They have been mining those worlds ever since. They became rich bringing building supplies to Amber.
