The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Birchett or a variant listed above:

Birchett Settlers in United States in the 20th Century

  • A Birchett, aged 19, who settled in America, in 1911
  • Alfred Birchett, aged 56, who landed in America, in 1911
  • James I. Birchett, aged 1, who emigrated to the United States, in 1911
