Migration of the Hothind family to the New World and Oceana
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England
, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hothinds to arrive on North American shores: John Hotham, who sailed to Virginia in 1715; Richard Hotham to Philadelphia in 1774; Ann Hotham to New York with her child in 1820; and S. Hothan to Savannah, Georgia in 1820..
