The Great Migration



Some of the Boernician-Scottish Clan families who came to North America were Loyalists who went north to Canada after the American War of Independence. Families on both sides of the border went on to found two of the world's great nations. This century, families with Scottish roots have rediscovered their heritage through highland games and clan societies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Craun or a variant listed above: Jasper Crane, a passenger on the "Hector," who settled in the New Haven, Colony in 1637; Richard Crane, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; Samuel Crane, who came to Virginia in 1653.
