Migration of the Hildersly family to the New World and Oceana

Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Hildersly surname or a spelling variation of the name include: John Hillsley, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1870.
