Migration of the Dyout family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Dyouts to arrive in North America: John Dyett, who came to Maryland in 1661; Henry Dyet, who came to Virginia in 1741; Maxwell Dyett, who came to New York, NY in 1822; Thomas Dyott who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1811.
