Migration of the Hawtie family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Hawties to arrive in North America: Henry Auty, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1871; and Alfred Auty to Philadelphia in 1878.
