Migration of the Ramstone family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Ramstone or a variant listed above: John Ramsden, who came to Virginia in 1642; Margaret Ramsden, who arrived in Barbados with her husband in 1665; and Mary Ramsden, her husband and four children, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1820..
