Migration of the Evet family to the New World and Oceana


Many Scottish families suffered enormous hardships and were compelled to leave their country of birth. They traveled to Ireland and Australia, but mostly to the colonies of North America, where many found the freedom and opportunity they sought. It was not without a fight, though, as many were forced to stand up and defend their freedom in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of these Scots abroad have rediscovered their heritage in the last century through the Clan societies and other organizations that have sprung up across North America. Immigration and passenger ship lists show some important early immigrants bearing the name Evet: John Evit who settled in Philadelphia in 1673; Arthur Evitt settled in Nevis in 1654; Ann Evitt and Elizabeth settled in New England in 1806; Stephen Evitt settled in Philadelphia in 1836..
