The Great Migration



The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Wrenten family, or who bore a variation of the surname Wrenten were James Renton, who settled in Virginia in 1716; William Renton settled in Nevis in 1722; Mary Renton arrived with her husband in New York in 1822.
