Migration of the Kingmind family to the New World and Oceana
Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Kingmind 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.
