Note:   The book titled ``The Family of Hoge'' by James Hoge Tyler contains the following account of this Hume family: \
  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 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. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
