Migration of the Bellchamp family to the New World and Oceana

Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bellchamp were among those contributors: John Belchem, who came to Barbados in 1679; John Belcham, who came to Barbados in 1679; Jame Bellsham, who arrived in Ontario in 1871; and P. S. Belcham, who settled in St. John, N.B. in 1907..
