The descendants of the Dalriadan families who made the great crossing of the Atlantic still dot communities along the east coast of the United States and Canada. In the American War of Independence, many of the settlers traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists.

Investigation of the origins of family names on the North American continent has revealed that early immigrants bearing the name Dairgay or a variant listed above include: John Dargie who settled in Boston in the year 1762.
