Migration of the Buntyn family to the New World and Oceana
Such hard times forced many to leave their homeland in search of opportunity across the Atlantic. Many of these families settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. The ancestors of many of these families have rediscovered their roots in the 20th century through the establishment of Clan
societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Among them: William Bunting who settled in Maryland in 1776; Sarah Bunting settled in Barbados in 1678 with her husband Samuel; Richard Bunting settled in Bermuda in 1635.
