Migration of the Issoomb family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Issoomb were among those contributors: Henry Isham, who was on record in Virginia in 1626; Robert Isham, who came to Virginia in 1635, at age 14; Dan and Roger Isham, who both arrived in Virginia in 1629.
