Migration of the Douline family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Douline or a variant listed above: Joe Dallinger who settled in Barbados in 1635; Cornelius Dawling settled in Virginia in 1654; Thomas Dawling arrived in Philadelphia in 1878.
