Migration of the Bolingeton family to the New World and Oceana
At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England
was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England
at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Bolingeton arrived in North America very early: 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
