Migration of the Stapyley family to the New World and Oceana


At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny.

An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Stapyley arrived in North America very early: Stephen Stapley settled in Norfolk Virginia in 1823.
