Migration of the Bucklen family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bucklen family emigrate to North America: Christopher Buckland who settled in Barbados in 1635; John Buckland settled in Virginia in 1637; Richard Buckland settled in Virginia in 1645; Walter Buckland settled in New England in 1759.
