The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. 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 Brighouse or a variant listed above: Lawrence Brighos who arrived in Maryland in 1677.
