Migration of the Camelfarte family to the New World and Oceana

Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people.

Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Camelfarte, or a variant listed above: John Cumberford who settled in New England in 1743; James Cummiford arrived in San Francisco Cal. in 1852.
