Migration of the Buntromb family to the New World and Oceana

They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Buntromb family, or who bore a variation of the surname Buntromb were Richard Bonython who settled in Maine in 1629.
