Migration of the Crumay family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Crumays to arrive in North America: Giles Crump, who settled in Virginia in 1637; and was followed by Thomas Crump in 1653. Francis Crump settled in Jamaica in 1760; Margaret Crump settled in Pennsylvania in 1772.
