Migration of the Bonthourn family to the New World and Oceana


Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Bonthourn family name Bonthourn, or who bore a variation of the surname were Richard Bonython who settled in Maine in 1629.
