Migration of the Attrie family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Attrie were among those contributors: Jacob Hattry, who arrived in New York in 1845; August Hatry, who was naturalized in Mississippi in 1879; and Julius Hatry, who was naturalized in Indiana between 1882 and 1886..
