Migration of the Aymont family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Aymont family to immigrate North America: John and William Raymond, who settled in Salem in 1630; Arthur Raymond, who settled in Virginia in 1635; William Raymond, who settled in New Hampshire in 1631.
