Migration of the Wareine family to the New World and Oceana
at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Wareines to arrive on North American shores: Nathanial Waring and his wife who settled in Maryland in 1699; Richard Waring settled in Barbados in 1654; John Warin settled in New England
in 1662; C. M. Waring arrived in Baltimore Maryland in 1823..
