"William Hoge, distinguished in state and church, came to America in 1682, He was the son of Sir James Hoge of Scotland, who lived in Mlussleburg near Glasco. On board the Caledonia, the vessel that brought him over, was a family named Hume, consisting of a father , mother and daughter. They were Presbyterians, leaving Scotland to avoid the persecution.
The Humes were from Paisley, Scotland. The father was a knight and a Baron. Both mother and father died during the voyage to America, leaving their daughter in the charge of young William Hoge, who placed her with relatives, the Johnsons, in New York City, while he decided to make his home in Perth Amboy, New Jersey on land owned by a Scotch company, at the head of which was Gov. Berkley, and of which he was a member.
Later William Hoge returned to New York and married the girl Barbara Hume. After the birth of his first son, John, He and his wife made their home for some time in Chester Co., PA."
