The Great Migration



The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Ridpeth family, or who bore a variation of the surname Ridpeth were John Redpath, a stonemason, who settled in Montreal in 1816; John and Mary Redpath who settled in Maryland in 1775; Edward Redpath settled in Philadelphia in 1853.
