Migration of the Bonnelley family to the New World and Oceana
The fertile east coast of what would become US and Canada was soon dotted with the farms of Scottish settlers. Some of them remained faithful to the crown and called themselves United Empire Loyalists, while others had the chance to pay back their old oppressors in the American War of Independence. That brave spirit lives on today in the highland games that dot North America in the summer. Passenger and immigration lists indicate that members of the Bonnelley family came to North America quite early: Alexander Bonaley who settled in Virginia in 1624.
