In Scottish history, few names go farther back than McBoom, whose ancestors lived among the clans of the Pictish tribe. The ancestors of the McBoom family lived in the lands of Boyne, near Portsoy in Banffshire since very early times. Translating from the Gaelic, the name means dweller by the river Boyne.

The Great Migration



Thousands of Scots left their home country to travel to Ireland or Australia, or to cross the Atlantic for the North American colonies. The difficult crossing was an enormous hurdle, but those who survived found freedom and opportunity in ample measure. Some Scots even fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence. This century, their ancestors have become aware of the illustrious history of the Scots in North America and at home through Clan societies and other organizations. Passenger and immigration lists show many early and influential immigrants bearing the name McBoom: Patrick Boyne who arrived in Philadelphia in 1874; Mathew Boyn arrived in Philadelphia in 1804 from Ireland.
