Migration of the Stoktone family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Stoktone, or a variant listed above: Jonas Stockton and his son, who arrived in Virginia in 1620, the same year as the "Mayflower"; Timothey Stockton, who arrived in Virginia in 1620; Thomas Stockton, who settled in Boston Mass in 1635.
