Migration of the Camule family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Camule surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Edmund Camell who arrived in Virginia in 1637; James Camell in New England in 1652; and John Cammel who arrived in South Carolina in 1716.
