Early Origins of the Igelsdend family

Migration of the Igelsdend family to the New World and Oceana


In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Igelsdends to arrive on North American shores: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
