The persecution faced in their homeland left many Scots with little to do but sail for the colonies of North America. There they found land, freedom, opportunity, and nations in the making. They fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence, or traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In both cases, they made enormous contributions to the formation of those great nations. Among them: Roger Park, who settled in west New Jersey in 1664; Sarah Park and her husband who settled in Virginia in 1655; Daniel Parke who settled in Barbados in 1654.
