The Great Migration



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 Rentin, or a spelling variation of the surname include: James Renton, who settled in Virginia in 1716; William Renton settled in Nevis in 1722; Mary Renton arrived with her husband in New York in 1822.
