Migration of the Bloare family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bloare were among those contributors: the farmer of the name Bloor who settled in York in Upper Canada, from him came the name Bloor Street, one of the longest and most important streets in Toronto. This caused almost a chain reaction of streets in other cities of Canada to be also named Bloor. James Bloor landed in America in 1762.
