Migration of the Querelle family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Querelle were among those contributors: Ellen Quarrell, who came to Virginia in 1638; Anthony Quarrell, who settled in Virginia in 1653; John Quarrell, who came to Nevis in 1654; and George Quarrell, who settled in Jamaica in 1663..
