Migration of the Ainlay family to the New World and Oceana
The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Ainlay family, or who bore a variation of the surname Ainlay were Hugh Ainslie who settled in New York City in 1822; George Ainslee, who arrived in America in 1809; John Ainslee, aged 47, arrived in New York in 1812.
