The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Baregate were among those contributors: Symon Barcott, who settled in Bermuda in 1635; Johannas Barget, who came to Halifax, N.S. in 1752; Thomas Barget, who settled in Virginia in 1773; and Avon Barcott, who came to Ontario in 1871..
