Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations
were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Salkeed family name include Salkeld, Salked, Salkeed, Salkelds and others.

Migration of the Salkeed family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland
, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Salkeed surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Fred and George Salked arrived in New Orleans in 1820; Thomas Salkeld settled in Virginia in 1728.
