In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Sailes to arrive on North American shores: Edward Sale settled in Boston in 1635; William, James, Mary and John Sale settled in Charles Town, South Carolina, in 1767; John Sales and his wife settled in Salem in 1630.
