Migration of the Dashe family to the New World and Oceana

Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Dashe, or a variant listed above: Richard Dash who settled in Virginia in 1622; John Dash settled in Virginia in 1774; another John Dash arrived in South Carolina in 1822; Joseph Dash arrived in San Francisco in 1852..
