Migration of the Sarrgeyn 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 Sarrgeyn or a variant listed above: John Sargeant settled in Virginia in 1675; James Sargeant settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1630; William Sargent settled in Charlestown Massachusetts in 1635.
