Migration of the Wouldfine 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 Wouldfine were among those contributors: William Woodfine, with his wife Elizabeth and son William, who settled in Barbados in 1679. In Newfoundland, Richard settled in St. John's in 1783; Richard settled in Devil's Cove in 1821.
