The Great Migration



Many Scots were left with few options other than to leave their homeland for the colonies across the Atlantic. Some of these families fought to defend their newfound freedom in the American War of Independence. Others went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these families have recently been able to rediscover their roots through Clan societies and other Scottish organizations. 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.
