Migration of the Neubay family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Neubays to arrive in North America: William Newby, who settled in New England
in 1634; Henry Newby, who arrived in Virginia in 1634; John Newby, who settled in Virginia in 1643; Robert Newby, who came to Virginia in 1656.
