Migration of the Comfert family to the New World and Oceana


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 Comfert or a variant listed above: John Cumberford who settled in New England in 1743; James Cummiford arrived in San Francisco Cal. in 1852.
