Migration of the Yeudale family to the New World and Oceana
Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England.

Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations.
