The Great Migration



The crossing to North America did not seem so great in comparison with the hardships many Scots endured at home. It was long, expensive, and cramped, but also rewarding. North America offered land and the chance for settlers to prove themselves in a new place. And many did prove themselves as they fought to forge a new nation in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of those Scots can now experience much of their once-lost heritage through the Clan societies and highland games that have sprung up across North America in the last century. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of MacKendry: 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.
