Migration of the Arrasmith 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. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Arrasmiths to arrive in North America: Elizabeth Arrowsmith who settled in America in 1718; followed by John in 1734; and Martha in 1737; Thomas Arrowsmith settled in Virginia in 1670; Daniel Arrowsmith settled in Savanna, GA. in 1865..
