For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad.

Early immigrants bearing the Barnoomb surname or a spelling variation of the name include: James Barnham who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1785.
