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. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Bushe or a variant listed above:

Bushe Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Roger Bushe, who landed in Virginia in 1650
  • Roger Bushe settled in Virginia in 1654

Bushe Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • George Bushe, who arrived in New York, NY in 1836
