Migration of the Brownswork family to the New World and Oceana

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Brownsworks to arrive in North America: William Brownsword, a bonded passenger sent to America in 1700; John Brownsword, who was on record in Pennsylvania in 1755.
