By the late 1700s, a horrific time in Scotlandâ€™s history, the Highland Clearances were escalating. Families were torn apart and thrown from their lands. Their homes were destroyed and their lives were in danger. Murdoch Gillis could not let his family be destroyed so he left his home, the home of his ancestors, in search of a new home across the sea. He boarded a ship bound for North America with his wife and children and a good many of his friends. Landing on Prince Edward Island, at Orwell Bay, the immigrants began a new settlement. They fought the storms in winter, the heat of summer and carved for themselves a place in Canadian history.
