Surnames: Hume, Johnstone, Hoge
I have been trying to solve this frustrating wall for months. The "Caledonia" reportedly sailed in 1682 carrying Scotch Irish settlers to the colonies, however, it made another journey in 1685 one week before the "Henry and Francis". This journey was captained by Lord Neil Campbell and carried prisoners banished to the America's. On board the "Henry and Francis" was Dr. John Johnstone from Edinburgh. I have come across a book published in 1899 ("New Aberdeen or the Scotch Settlement of Monmouth Co. NJ". written by James Steen A.M. counselor at law) that states a "Miss Hume" (his sister's daughter) came to the colonies at the same time as Dr. Johnstone and was sent to live with him upon landing in NJ. I am starting to beleive a simple error in transcription was made and the Hume family was aboard the "Caledonia" in 1685, not 1682. I hope if this is indeed the case, more leads can open up to the lineage of Barbara. One more thing, Barbara, by legend is the great grand niece of David Hume of Godscroft a famous Scottish author and historian who is descended from Robert the Bruce by his grandmother Allison Douglas. David Hume of Godscroft is from the Wedderburn line of the Hume/Home clan. This prestigious clan intermarried A LOT and all members are descended from the Earls of Dunbar and Kenneth MacAplpine the first recognized King of Scotland.
