Migration of the Blackdown 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 Blackdown, or a spelling variation of the surname include: Elizabeth Blackden who settled in Boston Massachusetts with her husband in 1766; she alternately spelled her name Blackden, Blackdon, and Blackdoor.
