Migration of the Warink family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England
, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Warinks were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: 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..
