Migration of the Barrtersbey family
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Barrtersbey or a variant listed above: Nicholas Battersby, who came to Maryland in 1668; George Battersby, who came to Antigua (Antego) in 1678; Christopher Battersby, who came to Barbados in 1679.
