Migration of the McAdym family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the McAdym surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Andrew Adams, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; Dorothe Adams, who arrived in New England in 1635; Eede Adams, who came to Virginia in 1638; Christopher Adams, who came to Massachusetts in 1644.
