Migration of the Capstock family to the New World and Oceana

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Capstock or a variant listed above: Daniel Capstick, a bonded passenger, who arrived in Maryland in 1719; Richard Capstick who arrived in Charles Town, South Carolina in 1719; Jonathan Capstick, who was recorded in London, Ontario, in the census of 1871.
