Migration of the Sauld family to the New World and Oceana
To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England
went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Sauld family emigrate to North America: Samuel Salt who settled in Virginia in 1679; Joseph Salt settled in Virginia in 1672; William Salt settled in Virginia in 1771; Robert Salt arrived in Philadelphia in 1854..
