The Great Migration



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 Ameri ca. Immigration and passenger ship lists show some important early immigrants bearing the name Kendrix: Daniel and James Hendrie arrived in Philadelphia in 1858; Joe Hendry settled in Virginia in 1635; Thomas Hendry settled in Barbados in 1669; Robert Hendry settled in New Hampshire in 1719.
