Migration of the Dalbin family
In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution.

Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Dalbins to arrive on North American shores: William Dalbie who settled in Virginia in 1623; Joane Dalbey settled in Barbados in 1679; John Dalby settled in Virginia in 1679; Susan Dalby settled in Maryland in 1736.
