As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Chimen has been recorded under many different variations, including Chimney, Chimyne, Chymene, Chymney, Chimnay and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Chimen or a variant listed above: Amelia Chymny, who settled in Maryland; and Michael Chymny, who arrived in Maryland in 1910.
