Migration of the Salut 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.

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Saluts to arrive in North America: Edward Sale settled in Boston in 1635; William, James, Mary and John Sale settled in Charles Town, South Carolina, in 1767; John Sales and his wife settled in Salem in 1630.
