The Great Migration



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: William Charteris who settled in Virginia in 1622; J. Charter settled in San Francisco Cal. in 1850; John Charter settled in Virginia in 1638; Lawrence Charters settled in St. Christopher in 1716.
