Migration of the Addeint family
To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Addeint were among those contributors: Stephen Deane who arrived on the 'Fortune', just one year after the arrival of the "Mayflower" in 1621. He built the first corn mill in New England. John Deane, his brother Walter and their wives arrived in New England in 1635.
