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. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. 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 Bradbourns to arrive on North American shores: Thomas Bradburne who settled in Virginia in 1663; Thomas Bradborn who settled in Virginia in 1732; John Bradburn settled in New England in 1705.
