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 Bargates to arrive in North America: 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..
