Migration of the Typple family to the New World and Oceana
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England
, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Typples to arrive on North American shores: Jon Dipple, who settled in Virginia in 1636; John Henry Dewalt, who was living in Pennsylvania in 1772; Henry Dipple, who was naturalized in Mississippi in 1822.
