Migration of the Eisle family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Eisle family emigrate to North America: John Eels who purchased land in New England in 1620. William Eels landed in Virginia in 1739. George Eyles made his home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1754. Other Eyles family members settled in Pennsylvania in later years..
