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 Bloxsome were among those contributors: Joseph Bloxham who settled on the Potomac in 1729; John Bloxam settled in New England in 1742; Nicholas Bloxam settled in Barbados in 1635; Anne Blossom settled in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1629.
