Migration of the lacie family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the lacie family to immigrate North America: Lawrence Lacey, who settled in New England between 1620 and 1650; Jane Lacy, who sailed to Barbados in 1660; Elianor Lacy, who arrived in New England in 1663.
