Migration of the Waimund family
A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: John and Francis Wyman who settled in Charlestown Massachusetts in 1630; Mr. Wyman settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1768; John Wyman settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1766.
