Migration of the Varrowe 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. Among the first immigrants of the name Varrowe, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were : John Farrar, who settled in Virginia in 1623; Frances Farrow, who settled in Massachusetts in 1635; Thomas Farrar, who settled in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1640.
