Migration of the Channsy family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Channsy were among those contributors: Jane Chance who settled in Grenada in 1774; John Chance arrived in New York in 1710; Will Chance settled in Georgia in 1735; Charles Chauncy settled in New England in 1638 was Second President of Harvard College.
