Migration of the Wartes family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Wartes were among those contributors: John Waters settled with his wife Frances and three children in Boston Massachusetts in 1630; Edward Waters settled in Virginia in 1610; Giles Waters settled in Jamaica in 1663 with Henry.
