The Great Migration



In those unstable times, many had no choice but to leave their beloved homelands. Sickness and poverty hounded travelers to North America, but those who made it were welcomed with land and opportunity. These settlers gave the young nations of Canada and the United States a strong backbone as they stood up for their beliefs as United Empire Loyalists and in the American War of Independence. In this century, the ancestors of these brave Scots have begun to recover their illustrious heritage through Clan societies and other heritage organizations. Early passenger and immigration lists reveal many Scottish settlers bearing the name Clunis: 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..
