About Sir James Hume

Links

The Humes with whom we shall later find the Hoges associated, were also a Berwickshire family, and much associated with the Haigs.. About the close of the seventeenth century -- 1682 -- a young man named William Hoge, son of Sir James Hoge, who was a son of George Hoge, a son of Sir John Hoge, of Busselboro, Scotland, evidently in good circumstances, came to America on account of the religious persecutions under the Stuarts. In the same ship, the Caledonia, was a family named Hume, from Paisley, Scotland, father, mother, and daughter, Barbara by name. Hume was one of two brothers, men of wealth and standing, who differed on the great questions of the day. One of the brothers conformed, the other, James, was true to the Kirk and the Covenant. He was imprisoned and most of his property confiscated, but through the influence of his brother was released on condition of his emigrating to America.

During the long voyage a pestilence broke out in the overcrowded ship and Mr. and Mrs. Hume were among the victims. Barbara was left alone, and William Hoge became her protector. He delivered her and her property into the hands of an uncle, a physician named Johnson, who was already in New York, and he went to Perth Amboy to make himself a home. But it was not a final farewell; an attachment had sprung up between them, and in due time he returned to make her his wife.

There is also a footnote that states, "Sir James Hume's father was a knight and a Baron and nearly allied to the House of Stuart, thus tracing back to Robert Bruce.

  • "I have looked at several genealogies tracing the Hume (also spelled Home) family in Scotland, and I have not find any concrete link to this Sir James Hume, unfortunately. I have seen one list of descent from Magna Carta signatories through the well-documented Humes and ending in this James and his daughter Barbara, but the dates of it do not work out at all. I was once mailed another piece of paper which names Barbara a grand-niece of the famous historian David Hume, but again, I have found no supporting evidence."

James Hume

Birth: 1642, Scotland
Death: 1682

Probably the son of Sir George Home and Catherine Morrison of Wedderburn, Berwickshire, Scotland.

"The Humes, with whom we shall later find the Hoges associated, were also a Berwickshire family and much associated with the Haigs of Bemersyde. About the close of the 17th century, 1682, a young man named William Hoge, son of Sir James Hoge, who was a son of George Hoge, a son of Sir John Hoge of Busselboro, Scotland, evidently in good circumstances, came to America on account of the religious persecutions under the Stuarts. In the same ship, The Caledonia, was a family named Hume, from Paisley, Scotland, father, mother and a daughter, Barbara by name. Hume was one of two brothers, men of wealth and standing, who differed on the great questions of the day. James was true to the Kirk and The Covenant and the other conformed. James was imprisoned and most of his property confiscated, but throught the influence of his brother, was released on condition of his emigrating to America.

During the long voyage, a pestilence broke out in the overcrowded ship and Mr. and Mrs. Hume were among the victims. Barbara was left alone, and William Hoge became her protector. He delivered her and her property into the hands of an uncle, a physician named Johnson, who was already in New York, and he went to Perth Amboy to make himself a home. But it was not a final farewell; an attachment had sprung up between them, and in due time he returned to make her his wife."

A footnote states, "Sir James Hume's father was a Knight and a Baron and nearly allied to the House of Stuart, thus tracing back to Robert Bruce."
