Many who arrived from Scotland settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would go on to become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. In the American War of Independence, many settlers who remained loyal to England went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Their descendants later began to recover the lost Scottish heritage through events such as the highland games that dot North America in the summer months. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the robertson family emigrate to North America: Daniel Robertson, who settled in Virginia in 1716; along with Francis, Isabella, James, John, and Donald; Alexander, Archibald, Charles, Daniel, Duncan, George, Henry, James, Jane, John, Robert, Thomas and William Robertston all arrived in Philadelphia between 1800 and 1870.

Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?In the Middle ages, spelling and translation were not yet regulated by any general rules. spelling variations in names were common even among members of one family unit. Peterson has appeared Peterson, Petersone, Petterson, Piterson and others.First found in Aberdeenshire where they were seated from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Faced by this persecution and the generally unstable political climate of those days, many Scots chose to leave their homeland for Ireland, Australia, and North America in search of greater opportunity and freedom. The colonies across the Atlantic were the most popular choice, but a passage there was neither cheap nor easily suffered. Passengers arrived sick and poor, but those who made it intact often found land and more tolerant societies in which to live. These brave settlers formed the backbone of the burgeoning nations of Canada and the United States. It is only this century that the ancestors of these families have begun to recover their collective identity through the patriotic highland games and clan societies that have sprung up throughout North America. Research into early immigration and passenger lists revealed many immigrants bearing the name Peterson: Cornelius Peterson who settled in Maryland in 1674; Evor Peterson settled in Virginia in 1653; Henry Peterson settled in Virginia in 1622; Neale Peterson settled in Virginia in 1653.

Where did the Scottish Murray family come from? What is the Scottish coat of arms/family crest? When did the Murray family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?

Although Medieval Scotland lacked a basic set of spelling rules, which meant that scribes recorded names according to their sounds it was not uncommon for the names of a father and son to be recorded differently. As a result, there are many spelling variations of Scottish single names. Murray has been written Murray, Murrey, Moray, Morey, Morrey, Morry, Murry and many more.

First found in Moray (Gaelic: Moireibh), at one time officially Elginshire, in the present day Scottish Council Area of Moray, in northeastern Scotland, where they were seated from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

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 Murray: Andrew, Anne, Archibald, Bernard, Catherine, Charles, Daniel, Denis, Edward, George, Henry, Hugh, James, John, Martin, Michael, Patrick, Peter, Robert, Thomas and William Murray who all arrived in Philadelphia between 1800 and 1870. In Newfoundland, James Murray was in possession of property and was a fisherman of St. John’s in 1784.

Where did the Scottish morrison family come from? What is the Scottish coat of arms/family crest? When did the morrison family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?

Medieval scribes most often spelled names by the way they sounded. Spelling Variations, are thus, very common in records dating from that time. Over the years, morrison has been spelled Morrison, Morison, Morieson and many more.

First found in on the Isle of Lewis where they were seated from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Scottish settlers spread out along the fertile land of the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. They and many of their children went on to play important roles in the forging of the great nations of the United States and Canada. That heritage has been recovered by many in this century through clan societies and other Scottish historical organizations. Archival documents indicate that members of the morrison family relocated to North American shores quite early: Daniel Morrison who settled in Boston in 1767; along with: Darby 1766; James 1765; John 1822; Michael 1822; Elizabeth 1635; Francis Morrison settled in Virginia in 1650.

Where did the Scottish Miller family come from? What is the Scottish coat of arms/family crest? When did the Miller family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?

The many spelling variations in Medieval Scottish names result from the fact that scribes in that era spelled words according to sound. Translation too, was an undeveloped science, and many names were altered into complete obscurity. Over the years Miller has been spelled Miller, Millar, Myllar, Mylar, Millare, Myllair and many more.

First found in Dumfriesshire, where the Miller family was seated from ancient times.

To escape the uncertainties and discrimination faced in Scotland, many decided to head out for North America. Once they arrived, many Scots fought with relish in the American War of Independence; some went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Many ancestors of these Scots have recovered their lost national heritage in the 20th century through clan organizations and Scottish historical societies. Among the settlers to North America were: John Millar, who arrived in St. John’s, Newfoundland in 1705; Daniel Millar, who settled in Maryland in 1714; George Millar, who was recorded as a runaway servant, convict, or slave in Delaware in 1754.

Origin Displayed: Scottish

Where did the Scottish McLean family come from? What is the Scottish coat of arms/family crest? When did the McLean family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?

Spelling Variations are a very common occurrence in records of early Scottish names. They result from the repeated and inaccurate translations that many names went through in the course of various English occupations of Scotland. McLean has been spelled MacLean, MacLaine, MacLane, MacLeane, MacClean, MacClain, MacClaine, MacGhille Eoin (Gaelic) and many more.

First found in the Western Isles where they were seated from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Scottish settlers arrived in many of the communities that became the backbones of the United States and Canada. Many stayed, but some headed west for the endless open country of the prairies. In the American War of Independance, many Scots who remained loyal to England re-settled in Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots across North America were able to recover much of their lost heritage in the 20th century as clan societies and highland games sprang up across North America. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first McLeans to arrive on North American shores: James Elizabeth, Anne, Daniel, James, Lettice, McLean who were all on record in Charles Town S.C. in 1767; Duncan McLean, who settled in Boston in 1766.
