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 Carlyngtons to arrive on North American shores: Michael Carrington who settled in Virginia in 1652 with his brother Samuel; Thomas Carrington settled in New England in 1632; Edward Carrington settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1632.
