Migration of the Atree family
Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Atree, or a variant listed above: Jacob Hattry, who arrived in New York in 1845; August Hatry, who was naturalized in Mississippi in 1879; and Julius Hatry, who was naturalized in Indiana between 1882 and 1886..
