Migration of the Chidlowe family to the New World and Oceana


In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution.

Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Chidlowes to arrive on North American shores: Catherine Chidley who settled in Virginia in 1685; John Chidley settled in Virginia in 1737.
