On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States.

Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Boyket or a variant listed above: Jarvis Boykett who settled in Charles Town Massachusetts in 1637.
