Migration of the Boalinton 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 Boalinton or a variant listed above: J W Bollington, aged 28, who arrived at Ellis Island
in 1895; James Bollington, aged 34, who arrived at Ellis Island
in 1913; and Peter Bollington, aged 66, who arrived at Ellis Island
