Migration of the Chatefeld family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. 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 Chatefeld were among those contributors: George Chatfield, who settled in Connecticut in 1639; Francis Chatfield, who arrived in Connecticut in 1639; Edward Chatfield, who came to New York, NY in 1821.
