Migration of the Billingslay family to the New World and Oceana

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Billingslay or a variant listed above: Thomas and William Billingsley who settled in Virginia in 1650; Bold Billingsley settled in Barbados in 1690; Francis Billingsley settled in Virginia in 1735.
