Migration of the Erringdant family to the New World and Oceana
Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of illness and the elements, were buried at sea. In North America, early immigrants bearing the family name Erringdant, or a spelling variation of the surname include: Abraham Errington who settled in Charleston Massachusetts in 1630; Thomas Errington settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1635; Richard Errington settled in Virginia in 1642..
