Migration of the Caithcarte family

To escape the uncertainties and discrimination faced in Scotland, many decided to head out for North America. Once they arrived, many Scots fought with relish in the American War of Independence; some went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Many ancestors of these Scots have recovered their lost national heritage in the 20th century through Clan organizations and Scottish historical societies. Among the settlers to North America were: Robert Cathcart who settled in New England in 1730; Alexander, Gabriel, James, John, Paul, Robert, Thomas, William Cathcart all arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1800 and 1840..
