Migration of the Adrain family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Adrain surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Christian Adrian, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1752; Sybriant Adrian to New York in 1759; P. Adrian to Baltimore in 1820; and L. Adriance to San Francisco in 1850..
