Migration of the Cockultment family to the New World and Oceana
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Cockultment or a variant listed above: John Coltman of Wethersfield who came from Sutton Coldfield in Warwickshire
, he settled in Springfield Mass in 1644; Ann Coltman settled in Virginia in 1623.
