It was in the Scottish/English Borderlands that the Strathclyde-Briton people first used the ancient name Hornbuckle. It was a name for someone who lived in Lanarkshire
. The Hornbuckle surname is a habitational name, taken on from the place name Arbuckle (or Arnbuckle), in the parish of Airdrie, Lanarkshire. The Gaelic name for the place was earrann buachaille,
meaning the "herdsman's portion" (of land).

Migration of the Hornbuckle family to the New World and Oceana
The number of Strathclyde Clan
families sailing for North America increased steadily as the persecution continued. In the colonies, they could find not only freedom from the iron hand of the English government, but land to settle on. The American War of Independence
allowed many of these settlers to prove their independence, while some chose to go to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots played essential roles in the forging of both great nations. Among them:
