Migration of the Baldie family to the New World and Oceana


Unrest, poverty, and persecution caused thousands to look for opportunity and freedom in the North American colonies. The crossing was long, overcrowded, and unsanitary, though, and came only at great expense. Many Strathclyde families settled on the east coast of North America in communities that would form the backbone of what would become the great nations of the United States and Canada. The American War of Independence caused those who remained loyal to England to move north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In the 20th century, Strathclyde and other Scottish families across North America began to recover their collective heritage through highland games and Clan societies. Among them: Elias Bald who arrived in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1758; John Bald landed in Philadelphia in 1753; Michael Bald landed in Philadelphia in 1838; and Robert Bald landed in Philadelphia in 1750..
