Migration of the Coveduck 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 Coveduck or a variant listed above: W. Cobbledick who arrived in San Francisco in 1860; as well as John Cobbledick, Thomas Cobbledick and Samuel Cobbledick, who were all recorded in the census of Ontario, Canada of 1871..
