Migration of the Bentown family to the New World and Oceana


The New World beckoned settlers from the Scottish-English borders. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Among the early settlers bearing the Bentown surname who came to North America were: Abigail Benton who settled in Virginia in 1642; George Benton settled in Barbados in 1669; Isabel Benton in Virginia in 1642; Robert in Virginia in 1635.
