The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Adriaen or a variant listed above: Christian Adrian, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1752; Sybriant Adrian to New York in 1759; P. Adrian to Baltimore in 1820; and L. Adriance to San Francisco in 1850..
