Migration of the Longhayd family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Longhayd family emigrate to North America: Robert Langmead, who settled at Pouch Cove in Newfoundland in 1841. William Langmayd was registered in Petty Harbour in 1708. Richard Langmeed sailed to St. John's, Newfoundland in 1841 and B.E. Langmade landed in San Francisco in 1852..
