Migration of the Kimberlee 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 Kimberlees to arrive on North American shores: Thomas Kimberley, who sailed to New England
in 1635. Edward Kimberly sailed to Australia
with the First Fleet
in 1788 and D. Kimberly journeyed to San Francisco in 1853..
