The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies.

Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Bonamies to arrive on North American shores: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
