Migration of the Du carriaie 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 Du carriaie or a variant listed above: John Carrier, who came to Maryland in 1662; Jean Carrier, who is on record in Montreal in 1660; Charles Ignace Carrier, an Acadian, who arrived in South Carolina in 1756.
