Migration of the Evringman family to the New World and Oceana
In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Evringmans to arrive on North American shores: Jeremie Everingha, who was recorded in Virginia in 1671; Henry Evringham who landed in North America in 1750; James Evringham, born circa 1760 in New Jersey, was a British loyalist, whose oath of allegiance was recorded in Canada in 1796.
