Migration of the Allway family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland.

Alway in Lincoln County, Ontario in 1872; and Alfred Alway in Haldimand County, Ontario in 1877..
