Spelling variations are thus an extremely common occurrence in Medieval Scottish names. Catheard has been spelled Cathcart, Cathert, Kethkert, Kethkart and others.

Migration of the Catheard family

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: Robert Cathcart who settled in New England in 1730; Alexander, Gabriel, James, John, Paul, Robert, Thomas, William Cathcart all arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1800 and 1840..
