Migration of the Crannifork 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.

Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Crannifork or a variant listed above: Edward and Anne Cranfield and their three sons, who came to Virginia in 1634; Peter Cranfeild, who came to Virginia in 1638; Francis Cranfield, who came to Barbados in 1657.
