Migration of the Wrentin family to the New World and Oceana
The New World beckoned settlers from the Scottish-English borders. 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." Among the early settlers bearing the Wrentin surname who came to North America 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.
