Migration of the Attburay 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 Attburay surname or a spelling variation of the name include : William Atterbury, who sailed to Maryland in 1733; Henry Atterbury, who arrived in Maryland in 1742; and Lewis Atterbury, who was on record in Philadelphia in 1801..
