Migration of the Kydal family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Kydal were among those contributors: Sara Kiddall, who sailed to Virginia in 1623 with two children; and Margaret Kiddle, who journeyed to Virginia in 1704.
