in the village of Hesselgreave.

Migration of the Hazlerigge family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hazlerigge were among those contributors: Thomas Hazelrigg, who was born in 1615 in England
, and died around 1675 in Northumberland
County, Virginia (date of arrival is unknown), as well as Edward Hazelrigg, who arrived in New York State in 1822..
