Migration of the Bollingeton family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bollingetons to arrive in North America: 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
