Migration of the Ellyearde family to the New World and Oceana

Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny.

An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Ellyearde arrived in North America very early: John Alward who settled in Maryland in 1666; Andrew Alward who settled in Boston in 1849. In Newfoundland the family settled in Cape Broyl, Grand Falls and St. John's..
