Migration of the Glovere family to the New World and Oceana
The freedom of the North American colonies was enticing, and many Scots left to make the great crossing. It was a long and hard journey, but its reward was a place where there was more land than people and tolerance was far easier to come by. Many of these people came together to fight for a new nation in the American War of Independence
, while others remained loyal to the old order as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of Scots in North America have recovered much of this heritage in the 20th century through Clan
societies and other such organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important and early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Glovere: Charles Glover, who settled in Boston after sailing the Atlantic on the ship, " Lion." He purchased additional lands in Salem in 1632. Henry Glover landed in New England
in 1634 and by the mid-1700's, the Glovers occupied territory in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina..
