Migration of the Camellfarde family
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Camellfardes to arrive in North America: John Cumberford who settled in New England in 1743; James Cummiford arrived in San Francisco Cal. in 1852.
