Migration of the Banink 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 Baninks to arrive in North America: James Banning who settled in New England
in 1774; Martin Banning arrived in Pennsylvania in 1856.
