Good Morning All
I have a question wrt passports/immigration.  I have a Virginia born
ancestor who married a British born Doctor in Va prior to 1775.  When the
Revolution began the Dr was a Loyalist and they returned to England. The Dr
then returned to New York in a British uniform and died there. Subsequent to
the war she, her daughter and her son, after he graduated from Edinburgh
Medical School returned to Va in 1792. On their return would they have been
treated as immigrants even though all were born in Va? Would they have had
to take an oath of loyalty?
Just to put a name on this law they were the McCaws and there were 5
generations of physicians in the Richmond Va area from this line.
Thanks in advance
