Migration of the Bingle family to the New World and Oceana
To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England
went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bingle family emigrate to North America: William Bingley who settled in Newbury Massachusetts in 1659; John Bingley settled in New England
in 1765; Peter Bingly arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1736..
