Migration of the Dauyngton family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Nicholas Dorington who settled in Virginia in 1623; Charles, Michael, Thomas, William, and William George, all arrived in Philadelphia between 1773 and 1875..
