Migration of the Irmynge family to the New World and Oceana
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Irmynge or a variant listed above: William, Francis and Elizabeth Ironmonger settled in Virginia in 1652; Robert Ironmonger settled in New England
in 1774; Thomas Ironmonger settled in Virginia in 1624..
