Migration of the Abilon family to the New World and Oceana
To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England
went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Abilon family emigrate to North America: Elizabeth Aplin, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1730; Robert Applin to America in 1764; Elizabeth Appling to Richmond, Virginia, with seven children in 1820.
