Migration of the Ordand 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 Ordand, or a spelling variation of the surname include: Adam Horden, who sailed to Maine in 1622; John Horden, who came to America in 1763; and Catherine Hordin, who arrived in New York in 1850.
