The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bromell were among those contributors: John Brumwell, who settled in Barbados in 1635; Richard Bromwell, who came to Maryland in 1674; Wm. Brumwell, who arrived in Virginia in 1665; Anne Brumwell, who came to Virginia in 1703.
