Migration of the Bayson 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 Bayson were among those contributors: Stephen Beeston who settled in Maryland in 1666; James Beeson settled in New England
in 1774; Thomas Beson settled in Virginia in 1635. In Newfoundland, John Beeson was married in St. John's in 1762.
