Migration of the Bermevyle family to the New World and Oceana


Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Bermevyle, or a variant listed above: Frederick Brownville who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1840; Elizabeth Brownfeild settled in Georgia in 1737; Joe Brownfield settled in Georgia in 1735 with his wife.
