Migration of the Bewick 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 Bewick surname who came to North America were: William Berwicke who settled in Virginia in 1648; James Berwick who settled in New Orleans in 1821.
