Migration of the Warringe family to the New World and Oceana
The unstable environment in England
at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland
, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Warringe arrived in North America very early: 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..
