Migration of the Blaikham 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 Blaikham surname who came to North America were: John Blackman who settled in Dorchester in 1640; Nicholas Blackman who settled in Virginia in 1624; Thomas Blackman settled in Barbados with his wife, children and servants in 1679..
