Migration of the Haithcock 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 Haithcock or a variant listed above: John Heathcoate settled in Jamaica in 1685; Jasper Heathcoat settled in New England in 1850; Edward Heathcote settled in Virginia in 1721; along with James.
