Migration of the Barwike family to the New World and Oceana
Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of illness and the elements, were buried at sea. In North America, early immigrants bearing the family name Barwike, or a spelling variation of the surname include: Lawrence Barwick who settled in Virginia in 1645; Thomas Barwick who settled in Dominica in 1774; Thomas Barwick settled in Virginia in 1622; Thomas Barwick settled in New Jersey in 1677..
