Migration of the Bigenham family to the New World and Oceana

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bigenhams to arrive in North America: Thomas Buckingham, who settled in Milford, Connecticut, in 1639; Edward Buckingham settled in Virginia in 1650; Richard Buckingham settled in New England in 1694.
