Migration of the lammesse 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 lammesse were among those contributors: Henry and John Lammers, who journeyed to Indiana in 1852; Charlotte Lammers to New York in 1856; and William Lamis to Sacramento in 1867.
