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: 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.
