Migration of the Aishemant family to the New World and Oceana

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time.

Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries.
