Migration of the Templetum family to the New World and Oceana
The number of Strathclyde Clan families sailing for North America increased steadily as the persecution continued. In the colonies, they could find not only freedom from the iron hand of the English government, but land to settle on. The American War of Independence allowed many of these settlers to prove their independence, while some chose to go to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots played essential roles in the forging of both great nations. Among them: John Templeton settled in New England in 1771; Edward Templeton settled in New York State in 1804 along with Jane; William Templeton and his wife settled in New York in 1774.
