Migration of the Hallatt 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 Hallatt or a variant listed above: John Hallett who settled in Barbados in 1680 with his wife and five children and their servants (see above); Andrew Hallett settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1635.
