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 Castleberreys to arrive in North America: George Castell, who settled in Virginia in 1635; followed by Henry in 1639; George Castell settled in Maryland in 1775; Dorothy Castle settled in Virginia in 1639.
