The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Hordern family, or who bore a variation of the surname Hordern were Adam Horden, who sailed to Maine in 1622; John Horden, who came to America in 1763; and Catherine Hordin, who arrived in New York in 1850.
