Migration of the Aylot family
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 Aylots to arrive in North America: Jonadab Illet, who sailed to Virginia in 1623; and William Aylott (also spelled Aylett) to America in 1774.
