The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: James Allam, aged 24, who landed in New York in 1701 and moved westward. Michael Allam landed in Maryland in 1733 and also moved westward. Mary Allam, aged 20, landed in Boston in 1720. William Hallam arrived in Barbados with his servants in 1680.
