Migration of the Sallkeld family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Sallkelds to arrive in North America: Fred and George Salked arrived in New Orleans in 1820; Thomas Salkeld settled in Virginia in 1728.
