Migration of the Wolkdent family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Wolkdents to arrive in North America: William Wallington who settled in Virginia in 1635; Joseph Wallington settled in Barbados in 1635; Nicholas Wallington settled in Massachusetts in 1638.
