The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease.

An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Bolingeton arrived in North America very early: J W Bollington, aged 28, who arrived at Ellis Island in 1895; James Bollington, aged 34, who arrived at Ellis Island from England in 1913; and Peter Bollington, aged 66, who arrived at Ellis Island in 1910..
