Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Ingletts to arrive on North American shores: members who sailed to North America during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
