Migration of the Goldsworthy family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England.

Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Goldsworthy, or a variant listed above:
