Migration of the Brodderip 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 Brodderip or a variant listed above: John Broadrip who settled in Nevis in 1654; Thomas Broadripe settled in Barbados in 1685; William Broddripp settled in Barbados in 1660.
