Migration of the Deckster family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Deckster family emigrate to North America: Francis Dexter, a youth of 13; who came on the ship the "Planter" in 1635. Even earlier, one Thomas Dexter immigrated to Lynn Massachusetts in 1630. The Dexters eventually made their homes in Virginia, Georgia, and as far west as San Francisco..
