Migration of the Cockuttane 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 Cockuttane were among those contributors: Richard Cutting and his brother William were amongst the first settlers in the New World. They left from Ipswich England
on the ship "Elizabeth".
