Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America.

An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Cheale or a variant listed above: Benjamin and Elizabeth Cheal, who both arrived in New York, NY in 1821; as well as Henry Cheal and William Cheal, who were naturalized in Oakland County, Michigan in 1856..
