Migration of the Cambaigne family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the uncertainties and discrimination faced in Scotland, many decided to head out for North America. Once they arrived, many Scots fought with relish in the American War of Independence; some went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Many ancestors of these Scots have recovered their lost national heritage in the 20th century through Clan organizations and Scottish historical societies. Among the settlers to North America were: James Champagne, who came to Virginia in 1705; and Nicholas Champaigne who settled in Maryland in 1725.
