Migration of the Chrymes 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 Chrymes were among those contributors: Samuel Grimes a "pewterer" who landed in Boston in 1635; followed by Alexander in 1651; and Edward Grimes who became Deputy Governor of Virginia in 1654.
