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 Arrowsmithy or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Arrowsmith who settled in America in 1718; followed by John in 1734; and Martha in 1737; Thomas Arrowsmith settled in Virginia in 1670; Daniel Arrowsmith settled in Savanna, GA. in 1865..
