Migration of the Badd 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 Badd: Christian Baid who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1856; P. Bad arrived in San Francisco, California, in 1852; William Baud arrived in Philadelphia in 1851 with his brother Stephen..
