Migration of the Budgett family

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 Budgett were among those contributors: Mary Bucket who arrived in Plymouth Massachusetts in 1621; Dorothy Bucket, who arrived in Virginia in 1714; Abraham Bogart, a Loyalist who came to Canada from America in 1796.
