Migration of the Kimperlay family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England
made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Kimperlay or a variant listed above: 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..
