are thus an extremely common occurrence in Medieval Scottish names. Brydoom has been spelled Bryden, Briden, Brydin, Bridyne, Brydyne, Brydon, Bridane, Brydone and many more.

Migration of the Brydoom family to the New World and Oceana
Such hard times forced many to leave their homeland in search of opportunity across the Atlantic. Many of these families settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. The ancestors of many of these families have rediscovered their roots in the 20th century through the establishment of Clan
societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Among them: William Bryden who settled in New York City in 1823; James Briden settled in New England
in 1805; M. Briden settled in New Orleans in 1823.
