Migration of the Chatteris family to the New World and Oceana
Unrest, poverty, and persecution caused thousands to look for opportunity and freedom in the North American colonies. The crossing was long, overcrowded, and unsanitary, though, and came only at great expense. Many Strathclyde families settled on the east coast of North America in communities that would form the backbone of what would become the great nations of the United States and Canada. The American War of Independence caused those who remained loyal to England to move north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In the 20th century, Strathclyde and other Scottish families across North America began to recover their collective heritage through highland games and Clan societies. 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.
