Yorkshire to Virginia, USA
« on: Tuesday 15 May 18 17:22 BST (UK) »
Hello.

Looking for informtion on Job Demaine (pronounced joab) He emigrated to Virginia, USA.
I know he was living there in 1820, but i don't know when he actually emigrated. I was hoping somebody could help me.

Thank you  :)

have you seen the christening record for a job demaine 30 aug 1779 in thornthwaite yorks is this probably him ? , also like you I,ve looked about for an emigration record but cant find one , thing to remember is that back in the early days most folk sailed to canada then went overland to the usa  a good site for  early records is THE SHIPS LIST they have quite a few listings but the only demaine I could find was for a B demaine IN 1831 .
sorry i cant be more helpful .
yours
