Migration of the Camifithay family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks.

An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Camifithay or a variant listed above: John Cumberford who settled in New England in 1743; James Cummiford arrived in San Francisco Cal. in 1852.
