Migration of the Bully family to the New World and Oceana
In such difficult times, the difficulties of raising the money to cross the Atlantic to North America did not seem so large compared to the problems of keeping a family together in Scotland. It was a journey well worth the cost, since it was rewarded with land and freedom the Scots could not find at home. The American War of Independence solidified that freedom, and many of those settlers went on to play important parts in the forging of a great nation. Among them:
Bully Settlers in United States in the 17th Century
Bully Settlers in United States in the 18th Century
Bully Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century
