The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Aylards to arrive in North America: James Adlard who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the year 1876; but shortly afterward moved to the west. Paul and William Allard had landed in the year 1767.
