Migration of the Dels family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Dels were among those contributors: George Dell who settled first in Boston, and then moved to Salem Massachusetts, about the year 1630. He became a freeman in the year 1651. He was a merchant and died on a voyage to England in 1654. Thomas Dell settled in Pennsylvania in 1682.
