Migration of the Truselle family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Truselle were among those contributors: John Trussell who settled in Virginia in 1622; Ann Trussell who landed in America in 1761; and Franklin Trussell landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1867..
