Migration of the Brumpton family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Brumpton surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Mansfield Brampton who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1772; Briar Brampton settled in Virginia in 1774; Isaac Brampton arrived in Philadelphia in 1858.
