Migration of the Croxment family to the New World and Oceana


In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Croxments to arrive on North American shores: William Crossman who settled in Virginia in 1637. John Crossman settled in Sutton and was one of the original purchasers of land from the Indians in the year 1639. John was originally from Taunton, Somerset, England. He had one known son, Robert.
