Migration of the Hanekare family to the New World and Oceana

To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hanekare were among those contributors: Christopher Hancker, who sailed to Philadelphia, Pa. in 1752 and William Hanker, also to Philadelphia in 1813.
