Migration of the Hineson family
At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hineson arrived in North America very early: John Hinson, who sailed to St.Christopher in 1635; Thomas Hinson to Virginia in 1670; Joseph Hinson to Philadelphia in 1812; Martin Hinson settled in Mobile, Ala. in 1852 and Andrew Hinson in Arkansas in 1896..
