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 Allun or a variant listed above: 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.
