Migration of the Lempett family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Lempett or a variant listed above: W. Lampart, who sailed to Virginia in 1665; and Adam and John Lampart to Pennsylvania in 1764.
