The Great Migration



The New World beckoned settlers from the Scottish-English borders. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Among the early settlers bearing the Hordan surname who came to North America were: Adam Horden, who sailed to Maine in 1622; John Horden, who came to America in 1763; and Catherine Hordin, who arrived in New York in 1850.
