Migration of the Kingmane 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 Kingmane or a variant listed above: Robert Kingsman, who sailed to New England in 1633; Henry and Joane Kingman, who came to Massachusetts in 1635 with five children, Lee Kingman, who arrived in Virginia in 1650.
