Migration of the Duseburay family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Duseburay or a variant listed above: Robert Duxbury who landed in Philadelphia in 1868; Thomas Duxbury landed in the same port in 1872; John Dewsbury arrived in New Jersey in 1677; William Dewsbury arrived in Philadelphia in 1880..
