Migration of the Cloum family to the New World and Oceana


Scots left their country by the thousands to travel to Australia and North America. Desperate for freedom and an opportunity to fend for themselves, many paid huge fees and suffered under terrible conditions on long voyages. Still, for those who made the trip, freedom and opportunity awaited. In North America, many fought their old English oppressors in the American War of Independence. In recent years, Scottish heritage has been an increasingly important topic, as Clan societies and other organizations have renewed people's interest in their history. An examination of passenger and immigration lists shows many early settlers bearing the name of Cloum: Michael Clunie who settled in Philadelphia in 1810; Daniel Cluney settled in Philadelphia in 1866; Thomas arrived in Philadelphia in 1868; Bartholomew, John, and Joseph Clune arrived in Philadelphia between 1858 and 1868..
