Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name langmaid or a variant listed above: Robert Langmead, who settled at Pouch Cove in Newfoundland in 1841.
