How would someone from Brailes around 1665 migrate to New Jersey , usa
« on: Thursday 02 April 15 04:12 BST (UK) »
I have found found records of Richard Heritage Born about 1640 in Brailes Warwickshire, England , died Sutton New Garden , USA August 16 1702 and his son Joseph Born Sutton Bedfordshire , England April 24 1675 and died November 13 1756 .

Here is a link that helps support this .

What I can't find is how they got there . I have researched all passenger ship list I can find and they do not appear on any of them . If anyone could provide another avenue of which I could explore it would be greatly appreciated .


            Thank you for your time

Welcome to rootschat.

It may simply be that not all ships kept passenger lists, or not all passenger lists survive. :-\

Yes that is a consideration , also a possibility is that they worked a cargo ship for their passage . I am content with the fact I may never know . I believe it is a safe bet that they put to sea through the Bristol Channel .

If the son was born in England in 1675, the date of immigration is going to be later than 1665!

"I have researched all passenger ship list I can find and they do not appear on any of them . "

There are very few passenger lists from that time period.  It would be surprising if you did find them.

Wiltshire:  Banks, Taylor
Somerset:  Duddridge, Richards, Barnard, Pillinger
Gloucestershire:  Barnard, Marsh, Crossman
Bristol:  Banks, Duddridge, Barnard
Down:  Ennis, McGee
Wicklow:  Chapman, Pepper
Wigtownshire:  Logan, Conning
Wisconsin:  Ennis, Chapman, Logan, Ware
Maine:  Ware, Mitchell, Tarr

So why or what would be the attraction for someone who lives in Burton Dorset to travel or go to Warwickshire from say 1450 ish to 1545 . Famine drought plague ?

How do you know the movements of these people? :-\

People often moved to wherever they could secure work. In 1450 I couldn't even hazard a guess. And a guess would be all it could ever be.

Doubt it would be drought in Dorset though ....
