Migration of the larimor family to the New World and Oceana
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England
, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first larimors to arrive on North American shores: Patrick Lorimore who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1810; James, John and William Lorimer arrived in Philadelphia between 1820 and 1858; Patrick Lorimire settled in Philadelphia in 1850..
