The Great Migration



The expense of the crossing to the North American colonies seemed small beside the difficulties of remaining in Scotland. It was a long and hard trip, but at its end lay the reward of freedom. Some Scots remained faithful to England and called themselves United Empire Loyalists, while others fought in the American War of Independence. Much of this lost Scottish heritage has been recovered in the last century through Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Cullop: Connard Colp who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1732; followed by Charles in 1856; Anthony Cope settled in Jamaica in 1722; Richard Cope settled in New England in 1635.
