Migration of the Melansan family to the New World and Oceana


Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of illness and the elements, were buried at sea. In North America, early immigrants bearing the family name Melansan, or a spelling variation of the surname include: Charles Mellanson and his brother Peter who both settled in Port Royal N.S. c. 1657; John Mallinson who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1858.
