Migration of the Carduw family to the New World and Oceana

As the persecution of Clan families continued, they sailed for North America in increasing numbers. In most cases, they found the freedom and opportunity they sought. Land was often available and the American War of Independence allowed Scots an opportunity to solidify their independence from the English crown. These settlers and their ancestors went on to play essential roles in the forging of the nations of the United States and Canada. Among them: Jean Cartue, who arrived in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1764; and David Cardew, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1769.
