Migration of the Boredmant family

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time.

Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Osgrand Boardman who settled in Virginia in 1625; William Boardman who settled in Cambridge Massachusetts in 1635; Mary Boardman settled in Maryland in 1698 with James Boardman her husband.
