Migration of the Hewelin family to the New World and Oceana

Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hewelins to arrive on North American shores: Benjamin Hewling, who sailed to New Jersey in 1677; Abraham and William Hewlings, also to New Jersey in 1678; and Philip Heulan, who settled in Newfoundland in 1869..
