Migration of the Henworth 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 Henworth were among those contributors: Thomas and Anne Henwood who settled in Barbados in 1679; as well as Abraham Henwood, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1814.
