Migration of the Gattesberey family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Gattesberey or a variant listed above: Thomas Gadsby settled in Virginia in 1635; John Gadsby settled in Maryland in 1774; and in the next year Ralph Gadsby was recorded in Maryland; Henry, John, John William, and Thomas Gadsby all arrived in Philadelphia in the 1840's..
