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 Boales to arrive in North America: Henry Bull, who emigrated from London to Roxbury, Massachusetts in 1635; Captain Thomas Bull, who arrived in Hartford, Connecticut in 1635; John Bull, who came to Virginia in 1650.
