Migration of the Candyland family to the New World and Oceana
at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Candylands to arrive on North American shores: John and Elizabeth Cundall who settled in Georgia in 1734 with their three sons, John, Thomas, and William; Edward and Robert Cundell arrived in Maryland in 1737 and the next year moved to Virginia.
