Migration of the Kimpster family to the New World and Oceana
At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Kimpster arrived in North America very early: Daniel Kempster, who settled at Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1635; Daniel Kemper, who sailed to Boston in 1651; Susanna Kempster, who came to Maryland in 1725.
