Migration of the Dolimount 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 Dolimount were among those contributors: Thomas Doleman settled in Virginia in 1624; Rebecca Doleman settled in Maryland in 1720; Mary Dollman settled in Virginia in 1670; Francis Dollman settled in Mississipi in 1820.
