The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. 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 Allcorn or a variant listed above: John Alchorn, a child apprentice sent to Barbados in 1750; James Alcorn, who settled in New York State in 1804; and Michael Alchorn, who was on record in Philadelphia in 1811..
